2018 Weingut Petri
A little whizz banger of a Pinot from the Pfalz in Germany. Brightly fruited with cherry and strawberry fruits, it zips along with a delicious briskness, but doesn't lack for depth and ripeness. The perfect red for everything from meaty fish to autumn game. L&S (Oct 2020)
*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.
Maximilian Petri's vines are in the Pfalz region on 14 hectares around the village of Herxheim am Berg on the ‘Deutsche Weinstraße’ - the German wine route. This wine-growing municipality is situated 200 metres above sea level on a foothill of the “Haardt” mountains (which are an extension of the Vosges mountains in Alsace), which provide shelter against adverse weather conditions. Little rain, lots of sun and a generally mild climate ensure that even the most demanding types of vines flourish, while the chalky soil with a high mineral content define the character of his wines. Vine cultivation is taken very seriously. Maximilian use's neither herbicides nor insecticides, and only enough fertilizer to provide sufficient nourishment for the vines. Grapes are hand-picked, low yields adhered too and gentle pressing with barrique ageing to retain the grapes natural flavours.
An eclectic selection of wines from our recently expanded German wine range. Riesling, Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir), Grauburgunder (Pinot Gris) and more...
Everyone likes a nice Pinot Noir these days. And everyone is right so to do. But Pinot Noir has an annoying habit of draining one's fiscal resources faster than desirable. Worry not. LEA & SANDEMAN continue to scour the globe in search of outstanding value and are glad to present a nicely-priced selection with all the nobility this variety can muster.
