very good

Wein-Plus

Clear, rather cool, lively, delicately smoky-reductive nose of more red than black berries with earthy, mushroomy and floral nuances. Quite firm, youthful, tart fruit, almost slender in appearance, some acid bite, peppery notes and fine, present, youthful tannin, very slightly smoky on the palate, herbal to planty flavours, a little chalk and salt, good persistence, tobacco traces in the good to very good finish.

Pure and super fine on the intense and elegant nose, the 2018 Pinot Noir "Tradition" is a first herald of the great 2018 vintage in Graubünden. It is sweet and intense yet fine and elegant on the palate, with remarkable freshness, purity and mineral foundation. This is a serious and persistent wine with a long, long finish. Dress yourself warm enough, because this is only the beginning of Martin Donatsch's Pinot world. 13% alcohol. Tasted in Zurich in December 2019.
