Werner Näkel is credited as a visionary that revolutionized Pinot Noir production in the Ahr wine region of Germany. He has received top accolades for his wines, and his latest Pinot Noir is one of the most crowd-pleasing German Pinot Noirs I’ve ever tasted. It is medium bodied and bright with red cherry fruit and forest berries, spices, but deep in flavor and silky and smooth. Pair with truffle dishes, game, lamb, prime rib.
The Meyer-Nakel vineyards are all about slate, the River Ahr, and Pinot Noir. This family has rewritten the history of red wine in Germany. The Ahr wine region is located on the northwest fringe of Germany. As German Pinot Noirs go, Merer-Nakel is one of the greatest producers of these varietal wines here. Called Spatburgunder here, Germany is now the 3rd largest Pinot Noir producer on the planet, ahead of more well known Oregon and New Zealand. Global warming has been good to Germany - grapes ripen well here, now, compared to the past. Many German Pinots are comparable to French Premier Cru...and things are getting even better. When a grand cru single vineyard German Pint Noir from the Meyer-Nakel winery won the International Trophy for Pinot Noir at the 2008 Decanter World Wine Awards, the wine world noticed - and everyone is still watching for these very high quality Pinot Noirs..
