Pfeffingen Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir) Dry VDP.Gutswein

Spätburgunder or, as the grape is called internationally, Pinot Noir is the diva of red grapes.

Only prime, fully ripe grapes were picked – all by hand – for this wine. At the Pfeffingen estate the vines grow on a deep loam soil which guarantees an ideal water supply. As in Burgundy, the high content of limestone in the soil gives the wines a maximum of finesse and character.

Pinot Noir demands a lot of the soil, the vineyard and the skills of the winemaker. In this case the grapes were de-stemmed and fermented on the skins for two weeks. After malolactic fermentation the wine was aged in oak barrels for one year. The use of only a small percentage of new barrels preserves the natural cherry aroma and makes the wines rounder and softer in tannins.

Spirited and deep wines come from this light, sandy soil vineyard, allowing Pinot Noir vines to deliver elegant, deep and concentrated wines, matching those of Burgundy itself!

The tannins in this great wine show it at its very best with serious meat dishes – particularly game, venison and lamb – but it also works wonderfully well with cheeses (serving tip: should be drunk lightly chilled)

Don’t be restricted by tradition though as this wine goes very well with a whole range of white fish, and drinks especially well with barbecued John Dory.
