2022 Hofgut Falkenstein Niedermenniger Herrenberg Rotwein trocken





Pinot Noir




Feral Factor: 1


Falkenstein excel with this style of wine year after year. Steely, racy, very pure and long. Spontaneous fermentation like all the wines here with no enzymes of other additives, leads to a 'sponti' nose - showing a little reduction. 


Mosel Fine Wines said about the 2021 (2022 not yet published):


The 2021er Niedermenniger Herrenberg Rotwein Trocken is made from fruit harvested on what was planted by the Webers as Spätburgunder 25

years ago but which the authorities now say is a mutation and not legally Spätburgunder, hence the fact that the wine is bottled simply as Rotwein,

meaning red wine. It was fermented and aged for 18 months in traditional Fuder casks (hence the late AP number) without chaptalization and

malolactic fermentation. It has an earthy and spicy nose of blueberry, clove, cherry, prune, potpourri, and black pepper. The wine proves delicately

creamy and juicy on the aromatic and cherry-drive palate. The tannins are still firm and herbal, so time is needed for it to integrate all its elements.
