Wagner Stempel “Heerkretz” Pinot Noir GG 2019
“Heerkretz” Pinot Noir GG
96 points James SucklingThe most remarkable innovation in the field of German pinot noir in many years. Explosivey vibrant nose that makes me think of cranberries, but it’s so much riper than any cranberries I ever tasted. Plenty of wet-earth and rooty character emerges as it aerates, then spices in a hot, dry pan. The fruit then shifts in the sour-cherry direction. So much vitality that it leaps and bounds over your palate. Crisp acidity with so much minerality and spice at the extremely long finish. From organically grown grapes. Drinkable now, but best from 2023.
