Germans, and practically no one else, associate this very small northerly wine region with slate-warmed red, sometimes slightly sweet wines made mainly by co-operatives from Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) vines. Some notable exceptions exist and there is currently an interest in the early-ripening Frühburgunder grape, a Pinot Noir mutation. Meyer-Näkel is the star here.
