Dr. Konstantin Frank Pinot Noir 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Vinification: The Pinot Noir was destemmed and crushed into small open-top fermenters. Multiple daily punch-downs as well as pump-overs assured a good extraction. The Pinot Noir was gently pressed and settled. The malolactic fermentation was completed in tank, then the wine was put in barrels. The Pinot Noir was aged ten months in French oak barrels in the traditional Burgundy style. During the ageing (in oak) the wine was racked from the lees. Finally, the wine was blended, filtered and adjusted for bottling. Description: This wine shows all the classic attributes of Pinot Noir from an exceptionally ripe vintage. Cherry, plum, blackberry, vanilla aromas and forest floor undertones jump from the glass. Impressive ripe tannins and a long clean finish makes this wine even more exceptional. This wine will accompany your meat and game dishes with great harmony. - Winery
