Each Wednesday join our Sommelier and GM Tim Rawding for a Marsh House Bar takeover!
“Every Wednesday, I will pull some of my favorite wines from our cellar at Marsh House to pour by the glass. I am excited to share with you wines that aren’t often available to taste, and to have conversations that lead to... well, opening more bottles! During the month of May we are focusing on the many expressions of Pinot Noir that don’t hail from Burgundy or California. All throughout the winemaking world, producers have been inspired by the great Pinot Noirs of Burgundy and in their own time, have done their best to capture lightning in a bottle. All month you will be surprised at the versatility of Pinot Noir, shocked that you aren’t drinking Burgundy and stunned that this grape can achieve such diversity. We look forward to your feedback on where the “other” great Pinot Noirs express best.”
This week featuring: Wasenhaus Pinot Noir Nouveau, Baden 2018
Germany is often forgotten in the discussions of great Pinot Noir. The efforts that have been made in southern Germany have yielded some gems but also some stubborn alcoholic bombs that didn’t honor the nuance of this great grape. Wasenhaus took a completely different angle with their Nouveau and produced an absolute springtime miracle in the glass. At $12 a glass, served slightly chilled, this Pinot Noir is energetic, playful and approachable….even if you don’t think it tastes like Pinot Noir.
