Good example of Pinot from Germany, It is lighter in style, but still very elegant, quite comparable to village Burgundy. It feels very young at this stage and needs to rest 2-5 years in botlle. Oak is nicely integrated not overpowering, rather complemneting. Will get some more to my cellar to see how it develops.
