Pinot Noir (in Germany known as Spätburgunder) from the “Nussdorfer Bischofskreuz” site comes from roughly ffteen year old vines which are rooted in sandy clay soil. The grapes are a particularly small and loose berry variant of the classic Pinot Noir which is lower in yield but higher in quality. The use of chemicals in the vineyard is kept to a minimum and insecticides are not used. An ecological nutrient cycle is attained using green manure.
Freshly picked and fermented Frappato grapes are blended with ultra-ripe Nero d'Avola that have dried on the vine to provide a delightful "Appassimento" style red - rich, savoury and a real crowd-pleaser.
Deep ruby red. A rich, expressive bouquet with notes of red-berried fruit, blackberry and blackcurrant with highlights of oak. The palate is rounded, ample and flavourful, displaying remarkable freshness. The harmonious balance of the tannins, which imparts fine aromatic length with a predominantly fruity back-of-palate, is to be savoured.
