SF = sulfur free
As a longtime fan of Holger's wines, I was a little nervous to see what zero sulfur would do to his classic Herrenstück Pinot. Though it may need a little air, the subtle spritz quickly settles down and shows a whimsical side of Holger's more staid vibe. Delicately floral with rosepetals and blueberry skin, this is lighter than many cru Beaujolais but reveals more and more volcanic, savory depth as it opens up. Sour cherry, mandarin orange, lavender, and sumac notes with mineral overtones. The mix of lively, wild edge with umami and ethereal balance is a dynamic and delicious.
