Furst is considered the nobility of German Pinot Noir.
Weingut Rudolf Furst has a history as winegrowers back to 1638. When Paul and Monika Furst took over the winery in 1979, they built todayâ€™s estate buildings on the outskirts of the village. They began with only 1.5 hectares of vineyard but have gradually expanded the vineyard area to the current 21 hectares, 60% of which is planted to Spatburgunder (Pinot Noir).
A mid-toned rusty ruby shade the Furst shows wonderful classic pinosity; woven notes of cherry and red current, dried violets and lilac rest atop hints of elastic band and cola spices. It's silky and elegant; there's nice restraint here and plenty of stony minerality layered with sour cherry flavours. Great acidity, great bones.
