Ziereisen Blauer Spatburgunder Pinot Noir 2016

'The man is a superstar, whose Pinots are up there with the very best.' Tim Atkin MW

"German Pinot Noir certainly has a distinct character, and it’s one I most often enjoy. This one is from Baden, on the border of Alsace (and Switzerland). Sour cherry, blackberry, earthy and smoky, a smattering of green herb. It’s tangy and earthy, dark fruit and smokiness, fine dusty tannin, and a meaty and savoury finish of solid length. It’s interesting for sure, and pretty good." 90 Points.  Gary Walsh.  The Wine Front

"Hanspeter Ziereisen is a highly unusual German winemaker. He is constantly experimenting, often on the wild, natural side... Ziereisen is also a highly successful maker of pinot noir (spätburgunder). Fruit thinning is a tedious and expensive business, but particularly important in cool climates... It’s one of the reasons he makes great pinot."James Halliday, The Australian

''Nice and grippy Pinot Noir. It has great ripe and juicy fruit and a medium core of fruit. It smells a little spicy. which is a nice twist. The price is right for a case-buy. It's a wine that you can bring out for any occasion and raise some eyebrows.'' Keith Beavers,

Top 20 German Wine Makers - Gault & Millau (The Gault Millau WeinGuide Deutschland 2019 contains the 1000 best German wine makers, of which only 20 producers received 5/5 grapes)

Of course, Burgundy is the homeland of pinot noir, but consider the region where these two wines come from correspond to the conditions of Burgundy and many of the methods used in Burgundy are also used by Ziereisen.   If you haven't tried German pinot noir, then you can expect something more savoury and “Burgundian”, especially compared to many Australian Pinot Noirs.
