Weingut Von Winning Pinot Noir I, 2013, Pfalz, Germany
£51.75 (inc VAT)
Old World meets New World to make something that’s out of this world.
Out of this world. Von Winning's top Pinot Noir is like a New World Pinot Noir, in that it is packed with rich plummy fruit, smokiness and body. But like the finest Old World Burgundy it manages to also have red berry fruit, delicacy, complexity and an extremely age-worthy quality. Somehow it is neither quite New World or Old World, hence why we call it simply: out of this world.
Humble heroes. From their intriguing (and award-winning) Rieslings to their groundbreaking Pinot Noirs, we love every wine and winemaker from this family-run estate. Founded in 1849 by Dr. Deinhard, developed by his son-in-law Leopold von Winning in 1907, the estate was revived in 2007 by Achim Niederberger, together with the Bassermann-Jordan and von Buhl properties. Tragically Herr Niederberger died in 2013, and his wife Jana now steers the ship. No herbicides, no synthetic fertilisers, no copper, no filtering and no fining. Every bottle is a winner.
