Frühburgunder Hommage Grosses Gewächs Walporzheimer Pfaffenberg

$79.95 incl. GST

Savour a truly rare, dry-aged red named in tribute to the artisans of its hidden valley.

The weathered slate soils of Walporzheim’s steep (70%) slopes force the mountain’s aged vines to dig deep to nourish this rare, early ripening Pinot Noir variant from the Ahr Valley.
Dry-aged in an oak barrique for up to 18 months, delicate and complex, with fine aromas of black cherries and ripe wild berries, this “Pinot Noir Précoce” has a warm, fine-spicy body with well-integrated tannins and acidity, and a hint of vanilla next to the fruit on the palate.
