Benedikt Baltes 2015 Spätburgunder "Buntsandstein"

The first thing to know about the Baltes’ wines is that all the vineyards are classified, so even this basic wine has pedigree. As the name suggests, the soil is red sandstone, and the entirety of the estate is only 10ha where Benedikt exclusively produces biodynamically-farmed pinot noir. Often, entry-level German pinot noir displays fruitiness but lacks the structure to go with it. This is not the case with Benedikt’s wines. The Buntsandstein has aromas of roses and cassis which unfold over a lattice-like edifice of acidity and sweet tannin which gives it length.
