home to the country’s pinot noir, particularly from Baden’s famous Kaiserstuhl
zone with its warm climate and volcanic soils. Karl Johner makes this charming
pinot with a mellow, surprisingly developed aroma, rich cherry fruits and
delicious succulent finish. Serve this fine German pinot just chilled with
charcuterie or mushrooms on toast. - Rose Murray Brown"

"Ganey mushrooms and a
rain-dripped woodland are on the nose. This German pinot from the heart of
Baden has a classy red fruit and cherry taste with a finely balanced acidity.
Perfect whether you're having turkey, goose, beef, or maybe all three.- Jane Clare"

"One of the more unexpected fashions in wine in the past year or two has been the rise of German pinot noir, which has joined sherry, riesling and natural wine as the default vinous hipster choice. Here's a wine that helps explain why: with its pretty, perfumed red fruit and unforced, silky-slippery texture, it's gloriously fluent and pure. - David Williams"

"16.5/20 Surprisingly evolved nose. Lots of pleasure even if it is not the purest Pinot. Quite excellent value. There’s nice freshness to it and no surfeit of oak or sugar. The best Pinot I have tasted from this producer. Very good value."
