A visit to Ziereisen is a memorable and very moving experience.  The vineyards, in the very bottom left corner of Germany, are rooted in limestone and, at 270-550 metres above sea level, look down on Alsace, Jura and the Swiss regions around Basel. Although he is always in a rush when speaking, he never rushes his wines; the Tschuppen is aged for 2 years in smaller barrels made by the legendary cooper Andreas Assmann. Add to all of this his penchant for naturalness (organic viticulture, minimal or no use of SO2, natural ferments, long lees-ageing, minimal filtration and fining, minimal use of stainless steel and heavy reliance on old / neutral oak vessels) and we begin to scratch the surface of the unique Ziereisen philosophy. "Recipe winemaking is a horror for us" says Hanspeter Ziereisen.

"After a maceration of six weeks, the Pinot Noir 2017 Tschuppen ages in used small Assmann barrels for 25 months. The 2017 opens with a clear, spicy and aromatic sour cherry aroma on the pure and refreshing nose. Delicate and tight on the palate, this is a medium-bodied, pure and refreshing Pinot with silky tannins and stimulating acidity. The finish is stunningly long, clear and crisp. Excellent style and quality." - Robert Parker Wine Advocate

"Has a juiciness to it but also this earthy rasp. Savoury, undergrowth characters mingle with tart dark cherry and there’s some clove in the mix, all sloshed over by blood orange and a juniper like sweet-earthy-herbal twang. Refreshing red, mad angles and all. Structure and length." 94pts - Mike Bennie, winefront.com.au
