2010 Pinot Noir (Spätburgunder) from Kaiserstuhl
Nice red cherry aromas with a touch of bramble fruits and nunances of vanilla and oak flavours. The acidity is typical for the vintage, making it feel youthful. Smooth tannins and lingering impressions of dark berries are leading to an elgegant supple finish.
This wine is our entry level Pinot Noir. The grapes grow on our cooler Löss soil sites. We take great care in vineyard management with intensive manual vineyard work like de-leafing and reducing the crop levels. Picking and sorting is done by hand. Skin contact fermentation for 4 weeks followed by a maturing in used oak barrels for 15 months.
