Description

Named after the bunker number on the Canadian airbase where Hans-Bert and Silke made their first wines. The smallest bunches from the oldest vines in their Nordweil vineyard, planted in 1971, are harvested a little earlier and vinified separately, in 2019 just one new barrique. The quality of the vineyards shines through: it is lighter than the ‘regular’ Pinot Noir, with more elegance and energy, leaning to the ethereal, and with breath-taking intensity. A tight knot of juicy morello cherry fruit will take some time to unravel, there are rich smooth chocolatey tannins and a delicate, long smoke-tinged finish. The best wine ever made here.
