Samtrot - The velvety Württemberg

Background:
Samtrot is a member of the Pinot family. Its name ‒ literally translated "red velvet" ‒ derives from its velvety softness. Samtrot was not only discovered in Württemberg, but this is the only region in which it is grown. It shares the same high demands on climate and soil as its other Pinot counterparts. In general, it is not a very prolific variety.

Color and Flavor:
Samtrot is similar in character to its Pinot counterparts, and in terms of color and taste, do credit to its name. Its harmonious acidity lends it a velvety texture. Samtrot wines have a warm red color and an aroma of raspberry and cherry.

Food and Wine Pairings:
Samtrot is a perfectly going with lamb or roasted beef and mild spicy cheese.
