2005 Pinot Noir »SJ«

Dark ruby red. Vivid aromas of red cherries and red berries. The palate balances a bright minerality and spicy tones. A Pinot with rich texture, silky tannins and a very long intense aftertaste.

This grapes were grown on vulcanic soil situated in our best vineyard sites. The vines a very old and produce less fruits. To create such a great quality-wine a lot of manual-vineyard work is needed. Deleafing the fruit zone for the airation and to gain a visual access to the fruits, reducing the crop (green harvest) and to half the remaining grapes are the main essential things to gain ripe and sane fruits. At harvest, we only have skilled pickers who also do intense sorting. The grapes are fermented on their own skins for 4 weeks followed by a storage in new oak barrels for 21 months. Before bottling we filter the wine to preserve it for maturation.
