Sommelier Wine Awards 2019 - BEST WINE IN SHOW WINNER! - Gold Medal + Critic's Choice Trophy

Kloster Eberbach Estate Pinot Noir - This muti-award winning wine has classic Pinot Noir aromas of red berry and wild strawberry. Bright crunchy acidity and supple red fruit producing a light-bodied wine finely balanced by smooth tannins.

Manuscripts dating from the 13th century show that red grapes were being cultivated at the Eberbach monastery even then. It's thought that the Cistercian monks brought the Pinot Noir vines with them, from their home in Burgundy, thus introducing them to Germany. The Pinot Noir grapes that make this wine are selected from vineyards in the villages of Rudesheim and Assmannshausen. After fermentation in stainless steel, the wine is matured in 1,200 and 2,400 litre oak barrels for around 12 months.

Here's what some of the Sommelier Award judges had to say:

'According to team leader Nigel Lister, ‘a pretty nose, elegant and floral, with gentle, silky tannins – a wine for a summer’s day’. Julien Sahut of Sexy Fish praised its ‘complexity on the palate, with cherry, black fruit and hints of spice, as well as good acidity’, while The River Cafe’s Mattia Mazzi thought it ‘vibrant, elegant and charming’, and an ideal match for ‘terrine or a cheese board’.
