This is what German Pinot Noir should be like; bright, pale in colour, full of life and energy.
Winemakers: Melanie & Michael Voelker
Region: Germany, Franconia, Kitzingen
Style + Colour: Still, red
Grapes/Blend: Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir)
Shell-limestone soils. Made using purchased grapes from an old, organically-farmed Spätburgunder vineyard. The grapes were de-stemmed with 20% of the stems added back in the must. It was a cold autumn so it took about three weeks until sugar had been converted into alcohol. Gentle pressing, malolactic fermentation and aged on lees in old oak. Bottled unfiltered.
