Pinot Noir Kalkstein | Frank John

Frank John’s mantra is “Grosse Weine alter Schule” which roughly translates as “great old school wines.” He’s inspired by tradition both in the vineyard and the cellar.  Kalkstein is a fine grained, aromatic Pinot with lovely herbal spices and a hint of toast. The finish is precise and full of tension revealing the limestone rich soils on his estate.
