Pinot Noir is increasing in popularity in Germany, with now nearly 12,000 ha under vine and producers experimenting more and more with low-intervention and fruit-forward styles.
With Christmas around the corner, and also budget mindfulness in the New Year, we wanted to recommend five German Pinot Noirs under £20.00 (and one for £20.99!) which illustrate the value for money offered by Spätburgunder from three different German regions.
