      Tasting Notes
      Weingut Salwey in Oberrotweil is proud of its history as a classic family-run estate. Yet that tradition only tells part of the story. Konrad is the third generation of Salwey to run the winery, which focuses on Pinot varieties traditional to the Kaiserstuhl region. The estate is renowned for its fine vineyards, including three "Erste Lagen": Oberrotweiler Henkenberg, Eichberg and Kirchberg. Konrad Salwey is renowned for his willingness to experiment. He knows it takes daring to try new techniques, and nerve to move on if need be — all in the interest of making better wine.

      The wines are strongly shaped by the loess and weathered volcanic soils of the vineyards, and are always fully fermented. In the cellar, nature is provided with plenty of time and space to do her work. Our job is to guide the other variables, including strict standards in the vineyards, a 100% selective hand harvest and wild yeast fermentation in large wooden barrels.
      Our hands-off approach in the cellar also means that the wines are neither fined nor filtered.

      All in keeping to the motto: as much as needed, and not a whit more.

      "Exotic spice and cedar notes mingle amidst plump red cherries and raspberries on the nose of this perfumed Pinot Noir. Firm tannins form a taut foundation to crisp, tart raspberry and currant flavors and savory nuances of dried herb and crushed granite. It's a remarkably elegant, squarely structured wine that should meld beautifully over the next decade. 94 Points." ( Anna Lee. Iijima, Wine Enthusiast Magazine, August 2016)
