    Pinot Noir 2020


    In our vineyards in the wine growing region Kamptal there is more Pinot Noir than you would at first expect. We owe this to Alwins parents, who followed their passion decades ago planting it in different vineyards around Langenlois. Despite not having much experience with this burgundy grape variety, they did everything right when choosing the vineyards. Cool and well-ventilated sites prolong the grapes short growing season whilst protecting them from potential late frosts, enabling the wine to present its delicate and elegant side. Our Pinot Noir vines are rooted partly on calcareous soils, partly on gneiss on windswept plateaus.

    Making of the wine
    The grapes were hand harvested and then immediately transported in small perforated boxes to the winery. The grapes were crushed, filled into open fermentation tanks with stalks and stems and left to spontaneously ferment without temperature control. After 14 days the wine was pressed and filled into 300-500-liter wooden barrels. The assemblage was made in large wooden barrels and the wine was bottled unfiltered.
