Rheinhessen: Jürgen Hofmann Appenheimer Spätburgunder 2016

While Riesling put Germany on the world wine map, it is increasingly their Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) that is getting people really excited. We were, therefore, thrilled to get hold of a small parcel of rising star Jurgen Hofmann's elegant single-vineyard Spätburgunder.

Bottle (Case)
Tasting Notes

A fine example of a new wave of Spätburgunders, this gem is grown on limestone-rich soils in the north of the Rheinhessen and raised in French oak for 16 months.

The Rheinhessen is the largest of Germany's 13 quality wine producing regions with around 25,000 hectares under vine, 70% of which produces white wine. Bordered by the Rhine river to the East and North and the Nahe river in the West, the soil types are varied and the undulating terrain supports mixed farming alongside viticulture.
