      Tasting Notes and Description
      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.

      "Salwey's Oberrotweiler 2017 Grauburgunder Henkenberg GG opens with a deep, rich and intense yet pure and elegant, mineral-scented "Burgundian" bouquet of ripe seed fruits intertwined with just a hint of oak, toast and brioche and notes of crushed volcanic stones. On the palate, this is a linear, pure, fresh and refined Pinot Gris with substance grip and elegance as well as a long and tensioned finish with refreshing grip. I had this medium-bodied wine as a sample in May this year, and since then, it has remarkably improved. Not as rich and expansive as a grand cru can be, the 2017 Henkenberg has become an excellent and stimulating Pinot ready to be served with fish and white meat and whenever you'd also like to serve a Côteaux du Champagne. Drink to 2030.
