The Spätburgunder of Meyer-Näkel from the Ahr offers a bright, light red color in the swirled glass. The nose of this red wine from the Ahr region delights with notes of mango, physalis, guava and blackcurrant. If we trace the aromatics further, cocoa bean, gingerbread spice and dark chocolate come in
On the palate, Meyer-Näkel's Pinot Noir starts out wonderfully dry, grippy and aromatic. Balanced and multifaceted, this dense red wine presents itself on the palate. Due to the balanced fruit acidity, the Pinot Noir flatters with a soft mouthfeel, without lacking juicy liveliness at the same time. In the finish, this red wine from the wine-growing region of the Ahr finally inspires with considerable length. Again, hints of pineapple and physalis appear. In the aftertaste, mineral notes of the soils dominated by loam and loess are added.
Vinification of the Meyer-Näkel Pinot Noir
This balanced red wine from Germany is made from the Spätburgunder grape variety. The grapes grow under optimal conditions in the Ahr. Here, the vines dig their roots deep into soils of loam and loess. Moreover, the grapes of this red wine from Meyer-Näkel do not grow in the flat land, but dig their roots into the soil in steep slopes. The steep slope cultivation ensures that even in cooler wine-growing regions with shorter vegetation periods, the vines receive a maximum of sun. After harvesting, the grapes are taken to the winery by the fastest route. Here they are sorted and carefully broken up. Fermentation then takes place in the cellar at controlled temperatures. The fermentation is followed by a maturation .
