We noticed a small plot on the Nußdorfer Bischofskreuz site of particularly slow-growing Pinot Noir grapes. It involves a special variation of this grape variety which only produces
small berries and corresponds to the ideal of the best juice shuck ratio. For this reason, the grapes can spend more time on the vine, giving us completely mature berries. Another
vineyard is located on the Heiligenberg site in Maikammer on a hill with dense and limy subsoil. Planted with vines from Burgundy, this Pinot vineyard yields a complex fruit aroma. Together with the robust Pinot Noir from Nußdorf, the result is a multifaceted, dense wine with a complex finish. A very traditional maturation took place in the cellar: the small berry grapes were only partially
de-stemmed, crushed and fermented in small containers. Remontage or submerging the pulp was done manually several times a day. The wine was subjected to subsequent refining through maturation in the wood: half in new and the other half in used 300 liter barrels made of Vosges and Allier oak. Malolactic fermentation also took place in barrels. This red wine doesn’t faunt its German origin but
stylistically corresponds to a Burgundy. It takes its time before presenting itself and is elegant rather than sturdy. A wine that speaks to you instead of shouting and more importantly it speaks for itself. yield equivalent of only 4000 kg/ha,
