Heinrich Vollmer ALTUM Pinot Noir 2008, Susanne’s Wine Pick.

A few weeks ago we were invited to an exclusive reception at the beautiful home of the German Consul, Mr.Walter Stechel. Mr Stechel along with Wines of Germany, Lufthansa and the German Tourist Board wanted to thank everyone for their support. They also shared with everyone some of the beautiful Christmas traditions of Germany as well as a few of their wines of course.

It was a great evening. Mr Stechel shared a few of the traditions with his welcome, including some that are quite different than some of ours here. The tree goes up Christmas Eve. The gifts only show up on the morning, even the colours and styles for decorating are different. I believe that sometimes requires a little negotiation in some families!

That evening we had the opportunity to try some very special wines, but my favourite was the Heinrich Vollmer ALTUM Pinot Noir 2008 from the Pfalz region. The grapes for this wine come from the top of the Vollmer Estate, from the Ellerstadler Kirchenstuck vineyard. Enticing aroma of cherries and hint of licorice, is medium-to full bodied, it was aged in oak for 12 months, has nice complexity, is well balanced, delicious and great for my big bird coming soon! I truly enjoyed and will be bringing to our Christmas dinner.
