When you think German wine, you think Riesling… right? Well, to dispel that one dimensional myth about German wines, we’ve decided to cover Salwey Dry Pinot Noir, a wine varietal that I truly do love!
On colour, the Salwey Dry Pinot Noir 2010 holds a light ruby red hue. On the nose, definite oak scents, light plum and some musk is present. On the palate, you’ll note that it is light, with acidity bursts that are woven in amongst the tastes of black berries and cherry. Though it may not be as memorable an experience as Manuel Olivier Gervey-Chambertin 2008 was for us, it was not an appreciated wine based experience as it gave us a chance to further explore the versatility of German wines.
