Lime, white peach and apple wreathed in freesia deliver a pungent, piquantly pit- and seed-tinged aromatic message. A tart fruit-skin edge, along with the aforementioned piquancy, serves as pleasing counterpoint on a palate of oily richness. There isn’t the musky or decadent side of Kirchenstück here, and perhaps little of the site’s mystery, either. But it’s early days for such a wine, and over time, as its sense of sweetness (which is in any case modest) and its infant gloss recede, there may well be much to contemplate. Meantime, the sheer succulence of apple and white peach judiciously reinforced by residual sugar and complemented by a botrytis-induced hint of truffle makes for a winsome as well as suitably persistent finish.

Region: Pfalz

Germany's thriving wine region of Pfalz is the second largest in the country, and is generally considered to be one of the finest regions for Germanic style wines in the world. The warm and sunny climate of Pfalz is exceedingly similar to that of Alsace, and many of the same fine grape varietals can be found flourishing there in the mineral rich, fertile soils which typify the region. With a history stretching back to the Roman times, Pfalz has long been a center for traditional viticulture, and that spirit of doing things the 'old fashioned way' remains to this day. With over twenty five thousand hectares of land under vine, Pfalz succeeds in being a large scale producer of wines, whilst keeping quality levels and distinction high, and whilst maintaining a tradition of excellence and elegance.

Country: Germany

If German wine has had something of a bad reputation in the past, it may well be the fault of the fact that for a long time now, the Germans have simply kept all the best produce to themselves. Visit any town or village in wine producing regions of Germany, and you'll be faced with a stunning array of extremely high quality wines, each matched with local dishes and full of distinct character and flavor. As white wine production makes up for about two-thirds of all Germany's wine industry, this is by far the most visible and widely enjoyed type of wine, but one should not overlook the quality and range of rosé and red wines on offer from this fascinating country. In particular, the Spatburgunder wines (the German name for Pinot Noir) are generally of an exceptionally high quality, being full of dark, intense hedgerow fruit flavors and exciting spicy notes with a silky smooth finish.
