Buntsandstein is a grand cru Pinot Noir sourced from vines 60+ years old, planted on colored sandstone. The 2017ers from Enderle & Moll are more serious, more restrained and darker in tone than past vintages (stem use here was 90% or more); thus the Sandstein has the cut and focus that is often associated with the Muschelkalk. Yes, the aromatics are brighter, sweeter and wider somehow – but the overall structure is quite defined and deep. This is a wine with grip and focus, even if it’s more perfumed and a bit friendlier than its limestone brother. This will require some patience; decant if you are drinking on the young side.
