TASTING NOTE
dark rubyred in the glass. Present flavours of dark cherries and red plums with a hint of spicyness. On the palate a fullbodies fruity wine with elegant and silky tannins on the finish. This is an appealing easy-drinking food wine.

WINEMAKER’S NOTE
This Pinot is from our youngest Pinot Noir blogs. 2008 we cellared different quality lots from the different clone. For that reason we separated our Pinots in three quality levels. This wine is the most accessive and fruity one. To produce a high quality Pinot a lot of intensive manual vineyard work like de-leafing and reducing the crop is neccessary. We do handpicking and select the berries again on a sorting table in the winery to ensure that only the sane berries are manufactured to wine. The fermentation on the skins took four weeks to extract the colour and supple tannins. After fermentation the wine was aged for 12 months in used oak. We bottled the wine unfiltered in June 2009.
