  • Winemaking We harvest our Pinot Noir grapes at about 22.5 Brix and then gently de-stem them before the maceration phase. Our macerations take about a week, to avoid harsh tannic flavors. The maceration ends with pressing and a full malolactic fermentation. After a rough filtration, the wine is put in contact with oak for at least 10 months.
  • Tasting Notes Color: Medium ruby red. Bouquet: Strawberry, rose hips and cranberry. Taste: A harmonious nose with cranberries, nice coffee notes from slight oaking, some earthy character, a bit between the old and the new world in style. The wine has a gentle alcohol (12.6%). Completely dry and has light tannic structure with a streak of paprika on the finish.
  • Food Pairing Ideal with grilled salmon, duck, mushroom risotto and pork loin.
