2019 Saulheim Spätburgunder Kalkstein
On the nose a hint of violets and intense aromas of wild forest berries and morello cherries, which are subtly underlaid with fine woody spice. On the palate a hint of herbaceous mint, fresh acidity and an endlessly long salty-mineral finish.
The grapes were harvested by hand with an optimal balance of aroma, acidity and ripeness. The time of harvest is particularly important for Pinot Noir. This Pinot Noir, rich in extract, spontaneously fermented on the mash for 20 days, was stored in high-quality French oak barrels for a period of 21 months (25% new barrels and 75% older barrels).
