I've always admired the texture in these wines and the Teutonic Wine Company 2019 Bergspitze Pinot Noir is no different. How can these wines feel satin-like while maintaining all the lift and elegance we want from Pinot Noir? That's what is expected from such a farming focused winery. Bergspitze, meaning mountain top in German, is sourced from old vines high elevation vines in Chehalem Mountains. This could be my favorite wine yet from Olga and Barnaby Tuttle, which is saying quite a lot.
While serving as the wine buyer at Papa Haydn Restaurant in Portland. German wine importer Ewald Moseler showed Barnaby 14 different Rieslings from Germany’s famed Mosel wine region. Within minutes, Barnaby bought all 14 en route to starting one of the largest German wine lists in Portland. That same night, Barnaby told his wife and partner, Olga, that he needed to learn how to make wines as expressive to terroir as these Rieslings. Fast forward about 15 years, and Teutonic is on the forefront of winemaking in Oregon.Learn More
