Sorry, this product is sold out.

Rudolf Fürst wines (including this wine) won two out of the top 5 positions in the International Pinot Noir Challenge in Hong Kong in January 2013 and they are always in short supply. On first nose you get a really attractive scent of vanilla and sweet spice that tells you the wine has been aged in oak. Red fruits are ripe and generous and the tannins are well-defined. A real treat.

As this vintage is out of stock, we would be happy to suggest an alternative if you contact us by email or phone.

First taste: This was the only bottle over which there was concern in some quarters over slight TCA so, because we had only two bottles of each wine and would need the second for any taste-off, the second bottle was sampled by only two of us to check that this was indeed a fine wine. I loved it. Pale crimson. Light and subtle and fragrant. Fresh and racy. Very vibrant, delicate. Really racy!!! Long, beautiful texture. Retaste: Lovely lift and harmony. On the edge of cleanliness but so pure and gorgeous! Bone dry finish but layers. The most delicate wine here. (JR)
