Weingut Thörle, Spätburgunder, Rheinhessen, Germany 2013
The period of over-oaked German Pinot Noir has been replaced with a more elegant, fresher style. Goodvalue Pinots are hard to find, but this entry-level wine from Thörle is exceptional. It’s focused with refreshing raspberry and damson fruit, and grippy tannins are nicely balanced on a meaty palate.
