2014 "Kalkmergel", Spätburgunder, dry, Premier Cru
Kalkmergel ( Limestone Marl ) refers to the typical soil for the northern Pfalz. The grapes for this wine are early selections from our Premier Cru vineyard “The Burgweg” as well as pickings from other “limestone sites”, All vines are original Burgundy Pinot Noir clones. Selective handpicking followed by traditional fermentation on the skins and maturation for 12 months in 2-3 year old barriques. Subtle raspberry, strawberry and cherry aromas. Elegant in every aspect, subtle cigarbox combined with fresh, red fruits and just a touch of ground coffee. The ideal wine for braised meat dishes, game or short fried beef.
