Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

From the Rhine Falls

Medium ruby. The nose is open, fragrant with cherries, discreet smoke and blood oranges. It is flatteringly soft and accessible on the palate; showing charm, a slim body and fine, and already well rounded tannins. The wine is balanced, has race and drinking flow, and shows a good length in the finish. Wonderfully successful, elegant and the perfect entry wine into the Pinot world of our winery.

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.
