Tasting notes: Krug’scher Hof – Rheinhessen Eiswein 2007– Spatburgunder (Pinot Noir)

This Icewine was produced by 100% Pinot Noir grapes (in German they call “Spatburgunder”).

Icewines are produced from the grapes that have been frozen on the vines and harvested during winter time… So there is a real effort for the production of this kind of wines.

I am going to write more about Icewines (or “Eiswein” in German), but now let’s focus on this wine only…

It has golden color with significant quince jam, fig and fig jam, as well as compote aromas with hint of apple followed by very nice floral aromas.

The wine has a medium range acidity and above medium body. I tasted this nice sweet wine with Stilton cheese… An absolute “wow” effect for a wine & cheese match.
