Falkenstein 2015 Pinot Noir (Blauburgunder)

The aromatic spectrum of this wine evokes fruits of the forest and cherries, with gloriously fine tannins. Pinot noir grown here has compact grape clusters with small berries. Following hand harvest in mid-September, the grapes are left in large oak vats for three to four weeks, during which time they are continuously mixed by hand. After this, the wine is transferred to French oak barrels of between 228 – 500 liters, where it remains for 12 months. Once bottled, the wine sees another year in cellar to develop its characteristic elegance.
