Description
Oliver Zeter is a very well-respected winemaker who has made wine in Italy and South Africa and fallen in love with white grape varieties, especially Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc. As a descendent of grape growers in Rhineland Pfalz, it was perhaps understandable that he would make wines from grapes native to that area too. This Pinot Noir, called Spatburgunder in German, is a local variety that - in times gone by - would often struggle to ripen fully. However, with the correct vineyard management and with some climatic change in the region, Pinot is now not only chosen to be grown, but is becoming increasingly desirable in the market place.
