Saumagen Spätburgunder GG

Classification
VDP.Große Lage

Variety:
100% Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir)

Origin:
One of the most famous Grand Cru sites in the Pfalz region. Marl lime mixed with countless small limestone rocks characterizes the soil in this small basin, facing south/south-east. Here, the vines can flourish in best conditions.

Vineyard work:
Buckwheat, radish and clover aerate the soil and attract useful animals. Horse dung fertilizes the soil naturally. We take off leaves selectivly and work with low yields.

Vinification:
Harvest by hand, second sorting and destemming in the winery. In warm years we add some whole clusters. After a short maceration the crushed must ferments in wooden “cuves”, with wild yeasts. Aged in new and reused French barriques. No fining, no filtration.

Character:
Powerul, yet elegant Pinot with great length
