Fruhburgunder Hessische Bergstrasse 2005

This was a  gift from our friends Heidi and Heinz from Bavaria, South Germany. It is basically pinot noir, but slightly earlier ripening. Shared it with my brother, who was down from Edinburgh, and an impromptu visit from Kiran and Birgit (who was packing his wine cellar across the road).

A lovely fruity nose of wild strawberries and red fruits/summer pudding, and hints of rose petal. Birgit  ‘very quaffable’, Kiran ‘a hint of arsenic/cyanide!!’, very worrying from the Curtis’. Must be the stress of moving. I was pleasantly surprised and would happily search it out again.
