Wine Rebholz, R Hansjorg Rebholz Spatburgunder Siebeldingen vom Muschelkalk, 2017
This German-style Pinot Noir mimics the elegant, spicy style found in Burgundy, while delivering a range of fruity notes. This wine has all the factors you expect from a quality Pinot Noir, including complexity, length and structure.
Red - A great take on Burgundian-style Pinot Noir with fruitiness, spiciness, texture, depth, and great maturing potential.
A very elegant, fine Pinot Noir from 2017 with a very dense, complex structure and a fine-spicy character. Its aromas are reminiscent of ripe sour cherries and wild berry, black pepper and fine notes of juniper. Aged in newer, small wooden barrels contributed the smoky spicy smell. In the finish supple and already quite harmonious. A wine with great aging potential.
Great food wine to be enjoyed with shellfish, cheese, red meats and flavourful stews.
The Pinot Noir vines grow on shell limestone, which was created during the Triassic 240 million years ago. The soil consists of "lime which contains or is made up of mussel shells". That is why one often finds fossils of marine organisms in the ground. The limestone soil is the best prerequisite for all of the world's great Burgundy / Pinots!
24 months in new and used oak.
The healthy and mature grapes were the base of this red wine. after of selective hand-picking, the grapes were destemmed and macerated in red wine fermentation tanks less than a week with continuous stirring. This "cold maceration" is supposed to be even before fermentation capturing as many Pinot Noir and typical local flavor compounds as possible. Then following mash fermentation of about a week with additional punch downs. Pressing was done after a total of three weeks of mash contact. Before barrel storage there was a tapping of the coarse yeast. For the two-year storage in the wood, where new and used barrique made of French and Palatinate oak. The wine was made with absolute quality in mind neither embellished nor filtered. That's why a fine sediment might be possible when serving.
