From steep, blue slate slopes and vinified in matured oak, the 2018 Dernauer Spätburgunder Blauschiefer offers a warm, deep, intense and generous bouquet. Full-bodied on the palate, this is a silky-textured and finely acidic, grippy and salty Pinot Noir with intensity, power and warmth but also finesse. Tasted in August 2020.
