Staff Pick Notes

Spätburgunder is German for the classic variety of Pinot Noir and in this bottle, Wiengut Stefan Meyer has crafted an absolutely exceptional example. Stefan’s grandfather started the estate in the greater Pfalz region with just 10 acres in 1954. Now in the hands of the 3rd generation, the estate covers nearly 49 acres distributed among 70 different small plots. Carefully selecting from 3 vineyard plots, which he vinifies separately, Stephen takes care to preserve the character and freshness of his vines, practicing organic winemaking for well over a decade now. This wine spends 12 months in large neutral oak and is bottles unfiltered. Expect a long and elegant sip filled with deep forest fruit notes of blackberry. This Pinot Noir has great structure from its time in barrel. I thoroughly enjoyed it as a relaxing sip with a light chill.

The most useful words to know on German wine labels are “Kabinett,” which indicates an outstanding everyday wine, and “trocken,” which means “dry.” As far as dessert wines go, a half-bottle of German Eiswein is so potent that you'll be able...
