Wine is my hobby. Fine wine tasting notes and experiences.

2020 Weingut Salwey Oberrotweiler Weißburgunder "RS"

Tasting note

Quick note following our week-end trip to Weingut Salwey in Oberrotweil in the Kaiserstuhl region of Baden, Germany. The Kaiserstuhl is Germany’s warmest wine growing region. The soil there consists mainly of volcanic rock and lava, with a large part covered by loess and clay. More detailed notes will follow in the future when I can sit down and spend more time with each of the individual wines we bought.

The 2020 Weißburgunder RS (Reserve, pinot blanc, a village wine) is a big step up in quality from the Weißburgunder Gutswein. Great nose, a bit nutty and earthy. On the palate, nice and fresh and herbaceous, rather sparse fruit, which I liked. Aged on the lees in large wooden barrels for about 18 months. Indication: Points in the high 80s to low 90s.

Drink from 2023 through 2027.
