Regular price £24.65
Iconic producer – Germany’s finest – Pinot Noir superstar – 27 hectares
Weingut Bernhard Huber
Located among the foothills of the Black Forest mountains in the south-west German district of Baden, the Huber Winery produces wines that are among Germany’s finest. The limestone and clay soils of the area give very similar growing conditions to those found in Burgundy, therefore it is no surprise that Pinot Noir thrives in this terroir.
Their 27 hectare site is now managed by Julian Huber following the death of his father, Bernhard. During his career, Bernhard was hailed as one of the superstars of German Pinot Noir and, thus far, Julian has managed to live up to his father’s name. The team boast an impressive array of accolades for their wines, including the Gault & Milau German Red Wine of the Year 2011, and as a result, we are very fortunate to have been able to secure an allocation of Huber’s wines.
The Pinot Noir Malterdinger is complex yet very elegant, not too dissimilar to a Chambolle Musigny in style. It is packed with juicy red fruit and black cherry characters, and displays velvety and soft tannins on the finish.
