This Pinot Noir presents itself in a beautiful garnet red with a slight water edge. Aromas of freshly mashed cherries and dark berries are recognizable in the bouquet. On the palate it is youthful with a spicy note and soft tannins. The wine has a light body with a medium length and fine acidity on the finish. This Pinot Noir “Hofgarten” is a light drinking pleasure.
After selective hand picking, the grapes are destemmed and stored in mash fermentation tanks. The mash is cooled to 10 °C so that it can undergo a cold maceration for about 1 week. Due to the rising temperature, the mash then begins to ferment spontaneously. The fermentation lasts about 5 days. After that, the fermented juice stays on the mash for about a week to macerate again. Then the mash is pressed and stored for 12 months in large wooden barrels for malolactic fermentation and maturation.
A good accompaniment to snacks and white meat. Slightly chilled, it also goes well with veal pie and farmer’s bread as well as with grilled meat.
