Kreuzberg Pinot Noir 2014

German Pinot = Spätburgunder

Last autumn, we tasted the excellent wines of German wineries which meet the highest German classification standards in Berlin with Máté Szedlacskó – who founded the Borstore in Berlin with our colleague, Gábor Csorba. There we enjoyed amazing Rieslings that are pristinely pure, delicious and razor sharp. In addition, there were oaky and dense Spätburgunders – as Pinot Noir is called around here. In the evening, we only had one question in the coolest wine bar in town: can we have a Spätburgunder that is not overpowered by oak? “Kreuzberg, I’ll bring it!” – came the simple answer, and indeed, the wine was spot on.
