"Pretty dark crimson for a Pinot Noir. Sweet and florally perfumed on the nose. Good grip on the palate with quite enough acidity. Fresh greenery is rather welcome to this palate that has just been tasting some rather sweet Pinots. Lots of energy here. And it's already good to drink. There is hardly any perceptible tannin."
16.5 points - Jancis Robinson

Oliver Zeter's Pinot Noir Reserve is produced from a small plot on the Nußdorfer Bischofskreuz site of particularly slow-growing Pinot Noir grapes. It involves a special variation of this grape variety which can spend more time on the vine, giving completely mature berries. Another vineyard is located on the Heiligenberg site in Maikammer on a hill with dense and limy subsoil. Planted with vines from Burgundy, this Pinot vineyard yields a complex fruit aroma. Together with the robust Pinot Noir from Nußdorf, the result is a multifaceted, dense wine with a complex finish. A very traditional maturation took place in the cellar: the small berry grapes were only partially de-stemmed, crushed and fermented in small containers. The wine was then refined through maturation in the wood: half in new and the other half in used 300 liter barrels made of Vosges and Allier oak. Malolactic fermentation also took place in barrels. This red wine doesn’t faunt its German origin but stylistically corresponds to a Burgundy.
