Garnet colour fading to pink at the rim. Black cherry and raspberry on the nose. On the palate, cherry and raspberry, with a touch of earthiness; good acidity, barely perceptible tannin, giving an appealing mouthfeel, leading to a soft, velvety finish.
Fruhburgunder is a mutation of Pinot Noir and can be found mostly in Germany. The vine ripens two-to-three weeks earlier than Pinot Noir, which explains its name; früh means early in German. Early ripening means the fruits escape the onset of a cold winter.
