Pinot Noir 2012Current Wines | Wines from 2012
The Pinot Noir is commonly considered to be one of the best and most precious red wine varieties of the world. In Austria Pinot grapes are known since the Middle Ages and can be found in almost all wine-growing regions of the country. The Pinot Noir loves the warm climate of the area around Lake Neusiedl. It ripens early and the wines are generally very full bodied and offer a tremendously rich bouquet.
This Pinot Noir shines garnet-red in its glass and develops an intense red berry like bouquet with hints of barrique flavours. On the palate it is strong, still fruity and has noticeable tannins. Its long lasting fruity finish tops of the impression.
This Pinot Noir suits to a grand dinner, beef, game or to vol-au-vent.
Needs 2-3 years after the harvest to reach its optimum. Can easily kept from 4-6 years or longer.
