Pinot Noir Ried Süßenberg Reserve 2018
Origin and Terroir
The grapes for this Pinot Noir originate from the single vineyard Süßenberg in the east end of the Wachau valley. Here the typical character of the Pinot Noir has the potential to develop due to the many hours of sun and the soil, comprised mainly of weathered rock.
For this Pinot Noir the grapes were harvested by the middle of October. In the cellar the grapes were destemmed and introduced to a classic must fermentation. After several days the fermenting wine was pressed out and stored in small oak barrels. After completing malolactic fermentation, the wine was matured 12 months in small oak barrels before being carefully bottled.
Ruby and garnet colors in the glass, beautiful scents of berries and fine spices develop in the nose, nice barrique tones, very elegant and substantial on the palate; a wine with a good aging potential.
