Weingut Bernhard Huber Malterdinger Pinot Noir 2009

There’s a first for everything, and this is the first German pinot noir I’ve reviewed on this website, from the southerly region of Baden.  It’s a good one too.  A between pale and medium intensity ruby in colour, the wine is bright in the glass.  Its aroma is clean, with a quite pronounced intensity aroma of cherries, spice, and some savoury attractive sappy characters.

It is quite youthful at 3 years old.  On the palate, it is dry, with trademark high acidity for this quite northerly home for pinot noir, with light tannins, medium body and intensity, notes of cherries and spice, and between medium and long length.  This is a great little wine due to the length and balance of its fruit, and I would gladly buy more of it.   Very Good

Abv: 13.5%
Price: n/a
Vendors: It may be imported by Cellarhand as it’s in their portfolio.  I suggest speaking with them for retail distribution.
