Saumagen Spätburgunder GG
- VDP.Große Lage
100% Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir)
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.
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.
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.
Powerul, yet elegant Pinot with great length
