Pinot Noir Käferberg Reserve 2019
The grapes for our Reserve grow at around 325 m above sea level on a terrace on the southeastern flank of the Käferberg vineyard, one of the most significant crus in Kamptal. Within a small area one can find crystalline rocks alternating with much younger clay marl, calcareous loess, and rare gravels that were deposited in the ancient Paratethys sea millions of years ago. The vineyard was planted with a particularly high density of vines. As the vines compete more intensely for water and nutrients, the roots penetrate even deeper into the ground, while at the same time only small and wonderfully concentrated grapes grow. The result is characterized by cool elegance and calm fruit, coupled with the typical saline freshness of the Käferberg.

The perfectly ripe grapes were selectively harvested by hand end of September and very gently destemmed without crushing the berries. Open fermentation in small batches with a small percentage of whole grapes. The mash was pressed off after several weeks of fermentation. Matured in small oak barrels for 2 years on the lees. Bottled at high atmospheric pressure during the waxing moon in September 2021.
A concentrated and lively nose, fine scent of raspberries, rose hips and sloeberries, in the background a delicately smoky note; dances on the tongue, cool, dense, the red berry fruit repeats, beautiful depth, saline fruit in the long finish; a youthful Pinot Noir with fantastic aging potential!
