Huber Malterdingen Pinot Noir 2014
The Malterdingen Pinot Noir is the village wine from Weingut Huber in Baden. Fruit comes from vines of up to 25 years of age, with deeper roots, 30 to 35% whole bunch. After harvesting the grapes with a crop round 55 hl per ha, this wine matures for 12 months in three- and four-year-old barriques.
Robert Parker/Wine Advocate – From 22-year-old vines on loess and shell limestone soils, the cherry colored 2014 Malterdinger Spätburgunder trocken opens with a very clear, bright and spicy bouquet of wild red berries, cherries and beautiful earthy flavors. Medium to full-bodied, fruit-intense and vital on the palate, this is a very elegant, aromatic and silky textured Pinot in perfect balance. The acidity is remarkably fine and the finish, though still a very little bit reductive, is pure, dry, fresh and beautifully aromatic. This is an impressive village wine from Baden's Breisgau subregion. There is just a hint of toast and mocha flavors in the aftertaste. 89 points. Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate February 2017
