Pfalz: Stefan Meyer 'Rhodter Klosterpfad' Syrah 2017

Impressive young winemaker, Stefan Meyer, only makes 1,500 bottles of this exclusive Syrah per year. Indeed, it is estimated that there are less than 100 hectares of Syrah planted in the whole of Germany, that's smaller than the hill of Hermitage.

Tasting Notes
We tasted this during a recent trip to Germany and were impressed by the wine's classic peppery notes and crisp, firm structure. It gives many a Northern Rhône equivalent a serious run for its money.

Weingut Stefan Meyer

Stefan Meyer's 3rd generation family estate sits on the edge of the Pfälzerwald nature reserve in the picturesque village of Rhodt unter Rietburg. Specialising in Burgundian varieties and Riesling on chalky limestone soils, his policy of minimal intervention in winemaking allows nature to take its course. Lengthy warm ferments, often up to the summer following the vintage, yield wines of great charm and character.
