Learn more about this wine
The renowned Siebeldingen region owes its unique geology to the subsidence of the Rhine Graben and the resulting uplift of the Palatinate Forest. About 220 million years ago, a low-lying formation from the Triassic period came to the surface. The strong influence of shell limestone is typical of these soils. The vineyards are situated between 180 and 225 metres above sea level and have a slope of 5 to 20 percent, facing perfectly south. The grapes are harvested by hand, then de-stemmed and macerate on their skins for about three weeks before being individually pressed. The wines mature for 24 months in new and previously used French and Palatinate barriques. Malolactic fermentation takes place spontaneously during the two years of storage and maturation. It is not filtered or clarified.

Sense of smell
This local wine from Siebeldingen surprises with a fantastically elegant and fragrant nose, reminiscent of wild berries, undergrowth, the finest roasting and a hint of bresaola. Dark berries and notes of cherries interweave harmoniously with the aromas of a warm forest floor, a little foliage and rootwork, juniper, pepper and oak.
The palate reveals a complex interplay of strength and elegance. This Pinot Noir is generous and clear, sensual and silky, yet at the same time powerful with robust tannins and a distinctive, lightly toasted wood note. Ripe and juicy, the wine is carried by a pleasant acidity and flows smoothly across the palate. This Pinot Noir from Siebeldingen delights with remarkable depth and length, fine tannins and a smoky, spicy finish.
Try this wine with traditional goose stuffed with chestnuts, red cabbage and potato dumplings or braised veal cheeks on pearl barley risotto with Tropea onions. For an Asian twist, try spring rolls stuffed with cabbage and porcini mushrooms.
