Pinot Noir from the Mosel Valley, Germany.
One half of the grapes came from the Paradies vineyard which is just behind Staffelterhof winery. A flatter vineyard on limestone + a bit of clay in the upper layer. This produces a fuller, rounder expressionof Pinot Noir. The second half came from the Letterlay vineyard which is on a slope and on grey slate. The grapes here are quite different, producing Pinot Noir with more tension, less ripeness, more elegance perhaps.
Grapes are destemmed and then fermented in open steel vats. Fermentation lasted around 18 days but the grapes stayed on the skins for 4 weeks. After pressing the wine is then transferred to a 1000L Fuder (40-yr old oak barrel) where it ages for 12 months prior to bottling.
Unfined, unfiltered, zero added sulphur.
