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, producing just two barriques. 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 breathtaking intensity. There is a dark core of black fruit with notes of morello cherry, Christmas spice, smooth chocolatey tannins and a fine long saline finish. We thought the 2019 good. This is even better.
