A superb Pinot Noir, whose concentration is clearly heralded by its dark ruby color. Initially it seems somewhat closed on the nose, then opens up to reveal its authentic, noble Pinot Noir origins. The aroma reminiscent of sour cherry and raspberry is enhanced by a delicate hint of vanilla and spice. On the palate it shows excellent harmony with elegant acidity, well-integrated sweet tannins and enormous concentration of aromas.

BARTHENAU 2001 HOFSTATTER A superb Pinot Noir, whose concentration is clearly heralded by its dark ruby color. Initially it seems somewhat closed on the nose, then opens up to reveal its authentic, noble Pinot Noir origins. The aroma reminiscent of sour cherry and raspberry is enhanced by a delicate hint of vanilla and spice. On the palate it shows excellent harmony with elegant acidity, well-integrated sweet tannins and enormous concentration of aromas.


Winemaker's Notes:

Wine-making: The grapes are lightly crushed and destemmed leaving around 25 % whole and undamaged when they are conveyed into the fermentation tank. The must is macerated with the skins at low temperature in order to refi ne the fruit aromas, after which the fermentation begins, lasting for around 10 days at a constant temperature of 28 ˚C. Maturation: The maturation in oak casks takes place in two phases, each lasting one year. The young wine is kept in small oak casks for one year, after which a uniform blend is made. The wine is subsequently matured in one large cask for a year, after which it is fi lled and matured in bottle for a further year in the cellars of the Barthenau manor house before release. Organoleptic characteristics: A superb Pinot Noir, whose concentration is clearly heralded by its dark ruby colour. Initially it seems somewhat closed on the nose, then opens up to reveal its authentic, noble Pinot Noir origins. The aroma reminiscent of sour cherry and raspberry is enhanced by a delicate hint of vanilla and spice. On the palate it shows excellent harmony with elegant acidity,well-integrated sweet tannins and enormous concentration of aromas.
