The red wines are understandably lighter and fresher than most pinot noirs, showing fresh strawberry and cranberry notes, and they reminded me of the pinot noirs I tasted in the Finger Lakes.
Tasting through the Rieslings I found they displayed great purity of fruit, balanced acids and lovely fresh dryness. It was fascinating trying each of the vineyards, as they each had their own unique qualities and characteristics.
The standout of the 2009 vintage for me was the Berg Rottland.
The Nonnenberg 2009 had good minerality, but lacked any real character and definition, not bad but not exciting.
Considering the quality of the vineyards, I think there is so much more to be got out of them.
