Variety: Pinot Noir
The area of Rheinhessen, tucked between Nahe, Pfaltz, and Rheingau regions, is so often misunderstood. This is mostly due to its production of Liebfraumilch, the sweet and cheap swill popularized after World War II, many considering “the armpit of German wine.” Bringing Rheinhessen out of its dark times has been a long uphill battle; Klaus Peter Keller is the primary factor of bringing about these changes. This brings us to the next “Keller,” a man by the name of Florian Fauth, who is coincidentally brother-in-law to Keller. Florian of Seehof is comfortable in his own skin, his wines sharing the same sentiments.
This rose comes from the homeland of limestone, and not slate. Pinot Noir thrives in this soil and the cool climate of the Rheinhessen. The value of this Seehof bottling is completely under the radar as Germany has never been sought for its rosés.
