. Karl Johner Kaiserstuhl Pinot Noir 2016


Baden, Germany

SKU: GERJOHN01BR Category:


100% Pinot Noir (or Spatburgunder in German) Established in 1985 after working for ten years in the English wine industry, Karl Heinz Johner and his wife Irene founded a small estate in their home village 'Bischoffingen' in the Kaiserstuhl. His focus was on the Burgundian styles – wines full of structure and pure elegance. This Pinot Noir is from special vineyards growing on volcanic ash soils. Deep ruby in colour, with a nose of mature red berry fruit, garrigue spice and typical mineral notes, leading to a fresh, clean palate of red currants, raspberries, cherries and cloves, with fine grain oak tannins, moderate acidity and a long, mineral driven finish. Perfect with ravioli with mushrooms.
