Pinot Noir Grand Cru

Brilliant cherry red. Red forest berries in the bouquet, an enormously spicy freshness, dried herbs and notes of tobacco. Firm and delicious on the palate. Crisp but fully matured acidity, fine chocolate notes in an extremely long finish. An epic Pinot from the Zürcher Weinland!

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.
