We are big fans of Thomas and Stephan at Hanewald-Schwerdt, we have had many wines from their range, and this new addition is a superstar wine.
Hanewald-Schwerdt is a partnership between cousins Thomas and Stephan who are members of ‘Generation Riesling’ a group made up of the best young winemaking talent in Germany. Their focus is on dry wines, primarily made from Riesling and Pinot Noir that express their vintage and vineyard.
Spatburgunder, also known as Pinot Noir is fresh, and a lighter style of wine compared to the nearby French style of Burgundy. This Herzfeld Spatburgunder has a wonderful aroma of dark berries and floral notes, and on the palate it is silky smooth. Some of the other Hanewald reds can have quite a grip when young, this one is like velvet. It is long, complex and delightful.
