Pinot Noir Langenlois 2021
Each wine-producing village possesses a unique character in terms of location, geology, and wine culture. The Ortswein (village wine) tradition has been preserved for centuries and reflects these distinctive qualities. Pinot Noir is undoubtedly one of the most fascinating varieties when it comes to translating origin into wine. In the cool climate of Kamptal, on calcareous loess and metamorphic rock soils, the grape expresses a delicate, feminine character that captivates us year after year. This elegant and refreshing Pinot Noir blends grapes from our Thal and Käferberg terraces, showcasing the characteristic geological and microclimatic spectrum of Langenlois.
