Character: The Blauschiefer is a very good example for the extraordinary combination of slate and Pinot Noir. The stony soil creates a mineral wine with smoky aroma of red fruits like blackberry, blueberry, red currant and dark cherry, that is accompanied by floral and roasted aroma, with a good substance and sustainability, elegant and smooth tannins.

Food recommendation: This wine goes well with poultry, light meat, pasta and mushroom as well as a spicy companion to grilled stronger spiced fish.
