A still young Pinot Noir/Pinot Noir with aromas of red berries, cherries and mint. On the palate, fine roasted notes and a hint of spice lead to a mineral finish.
Aromatically the wine has notes of tart, red berry fruits, damp brush and a hint of minerality. On the palate the wine is clearly made in a Burgundian style, with fresh fruit flavors that remain reserved, delightful acidity, and notes of damp earth.
High quality wine doesn’t come on its own. It starts in our vineyards with yield reduction and hand picking into small boxes. After a second sorting in the winery, the grapes get partly destemmed by hand. The fermentation takes place in traditional open vats and gentle punch downs ensure a careful extraction of the fine aromas. Aged in small French oak barrels and bottling happens without any filtration.
The Spätburgunder, also known as Pinot Noir, fruit is hand harvested from an estate owned vineyard in the village of Westhofen. After harvest the fruit is 100% destemmed, which is followed by a native yeast fermentation. The wine is then aged for 16 months in oak barrels ranging between 2-3 years old.
