The name 'Kalkmergel' refers to the soil type on which the vines are grown: a limestone-marl blend, reminiscent of the finest Pinot Noir soils of Burgundy. Hand-picked from 5-30 year old vines.
German Pinot Noir, strawberry and elegant, with a beautiful leafy complexity and a Burgundy-style touch of earth on the palate.
Light red meat dishes and game. Guinea fowl would be perfect. Wild mushrooms would also work beautifully.
The juice is macerated with the skins for 3 days at 2°C before fermentation in stainless steel tanks for 10 days at a temperature of 22°C. The wine is matured for 17 months in 50% 2-year-old French oak barriques and 50% 3-year-old French barriques.
