Pinot Noir Klettgau

Dark ruby. In the nose this is cool, deep, smokey and at the same time floral with violets, many dark cherries, blueberries, Bündnerfleisch: it is very complex and deep. On the palate this is tight and slender in the beginning; the wine shows a good structure, fine tannins. In addition this offers an enormous freshness and liveliness, there is no heaviness in the game, the wine has movement and is so digestible. It ends very long and spicy.

Our red wines

Our red wines are gently destemmed, partly fermented as whole grapes and then spontaneously fermented in large wooden barrels (grape yeasts). We gently press the grapes to avoid releasing bitter tannins. Then, a subsequent second fermentation (BSA) along with a long ageing on the yeast in large or small wooden barrels. Filtration happens only if necessary, and a small addition of sulphur before bottling and filling by gravity takes place. Our red wines are storage wines that are designed to age for a few more years.
