Notes from importer, Living Wines:
This beautiful Pinot Noir was made from grapes picked from their vineyards Soot and Hochstaden where the yields are very low. However, low yields often produce much better wines as fewer grapes are competing for the goodness being fed into the vines from the soil.
After a careful selection of grapes for ripeness the juice is macerated on skins for two weeks before pressing and then transfer to old wooden foudre where it matured for 14 months.
The wine is not fined or filtered and no sulphites are added at any stage. The bottle is closed with a DIAM closure and the alcohol level is a very balanced 13%
