Schnaitmann, Lemberger Simonroth 2016
A refined, complex nose of violet, thyme and juniper intermingled with dark berry fruits; blackberry, blueberry and sloe. The influence of oak is subtle and perfectly integrated followed by a palette of rich dark forest fruits and earthy forest floor. Perfectly suitable for ageing a couple of years or pairing with that pheasant you've still got in the freezer, especially with a fruity jus ;)
The wine is produced with a traditional mash fermentation with whole grapes, spontaneously fermented and aged in old 300-litre barrels. Based in Wurttemberg to the south of Germany where the weather is warmer and the grapes ripen quickly, giving them their intense fruity flavour and vibrant characteristics.
Weingut Schnaitmann is an active an inspiring estate. They take an active role in the local community and regularly take on youngsters keen to get in to winemaking every harvest.
