About the wine

The fruit comes from the thermal region south of Vienna, more precisely from the Eichkogel and Anninger vineyards near Gumpoldskirchen, which are characterized by limestone and clay. After selective hand harvesting in 20-kilo cases in mid-September 2017, the Pinot noir was fermented spontaneously in wooden fermentation racks for three weeks at up to 30 °C. The wine was aged for one year in used 300-liter barrels on the full lees and for another nine months in 1,250-liter barrels on the fine lees.  

Color

slightly transparent, strong garnet red with violet reflections

Nose

The Pinot noir from Gumpoldskirchen opens multilayered and inviting with notes of dark cherries and also a hint of blackberries and plums, but above all of a lot of spices. These include allspice and juniper, a little clove and dark tobacco, but also slightly damp undergrowth with moss and leaves.

Mouth

On the palate, the Pinot noir is very juicy and as complex as the aroma suggested. And that is exactly the highlight of this wine. It creates a wonderful balance of demand and drinking pleasure, which is justified by juicy dark and red fruit, a fine, lively acidity and elegant wood spice along with a silky tannin. Here, the floating, the dancing of this wine, which nevertheless always remains grounded, inspires.
