Ahr

Ahr is one of Germany’s least-known and northernmost wine regions. It lies immediately north of the Mosel, and follows the Ahr River in the final stages of its journey towards its confluence with the mighty Rhine. One might expect a wine region this far north (50°N) to specialize in white wines – like almost every other cool-climate wine region. After all, neighboring Mosel and Mittelrhein both clearly favor white wines (around 85%). But Ahr turns the tables completely, producing around 85% red wines, of which around three-quarters are made from Spätburgunder (a.k.a. Pinot Noir). The classic Ahr Spatburgunder is brick-red in color and smells of red cherries, sweet spices, forest floor, possibly with a hint of smoky bacon fat if barrel-aged.
