Franz Haas Pinot Nero 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The wine making process for the grapes is in open vats so that during fermentation the must comes into contact with the grape skins through frequent cap punch-down and with many pump-over. Thanks to these techniques the colouring substances and the fragrances contained in the skins are extracted and pass into the wine. After this, the wine develops in barriques for over a year, and after bottling for a few months in the bottle.

A family-run estate, it was handed down through the generations to the first-born son Franz Haas. Through the years and the constant commitment of its owners and employees, this wine making estate has evolved into today's innovative winery. We vinify grapes from 50 hectares of vineyards, of which 28 hectares are estate-grown or rented, while the balance comes from vine growers with plots in particularly vocated microareas. Read less

Gamey aroma with strawberry fruit and fresh oak. Pepper on the body with strawberry fruit coming forward in the middle and buttery finish.

Big acid and a downplayed nose. Black raspberry, cranberry, pomegranate and rhubarb. Slate mineral. Earth. Red and some darker fruits. Feels lighter on the palate with vibrant acid. Flavors of blueberry, black plum, pomegranate, brambleberry and rhubarb. Also, black cherry on the mid palate. Good minerality, earthiness and stone influence. Slight herb and white pepper nuances. Big acid on the finish. Ends on a core of blue fruit. 89 pts.

Some lightly leathery cherry on the nose. A little wet smelling. A juicy wine with low tannin and high acid. Very drinkable. Enjoy this.

I really like the color, more Burgundian than California or Oregon. The nose was delicious cherry with fresh berry aroma. On the palate a taste of cherry with raspberry being slightly more dominate. Tannins were light to medium but enough to give this wine some nice structure. The finish was a little short but pleasant. This wine could easily become my very affordable "BURGUNDY".

Franz Haas Pinot Nero has a nice pale-red colour, with fascinating red fruits aromas (raspberry, cranberry). This Pinot Nero has a very good equilibrium between sweetness, salty notes and acidity and a long lasting taste. Good to appreacite with "primi piatti" or main dishes of meat (beef, lamb, pork).

Intensive Farbe mit leicht violetten Nuancen; der Duft nach Pflaumen, Kirschen und Pfeffer wird durch Noten von Eiche und Rauch dezent unterstrichen und abgerundet; im Mund wirkt er geschmeidig und finessenreich, die Gerbstoffe sind weich und dicht.



Tasting Notes:

Pinot Nero, which for Franz Haas is “the white among the reds”, is a changing interplay of colours which, influenced greatly by the vintage, can go from a light ruby to an intense ruby red. The bouquet opens with notes of black cherries and raspberries, marzipan and plum jam, cloves and cinnamon, ending finally with aromas of underbrush. In the mouth the wine is fresh and lively, bolstered by elegant tannins which render it harmonious and round, promising a noticeable pleasantness while drinking.

The wine making process for the grapes is in open vats so that during fermentation the must comes into contact with the grape skins through frequent cap punch-down and with many pump-over. Thanks to these techniques the colouring substances and the fragrances contained in the skins are extracted and pass into the wine. After this, the wine develops in barriques for over a year, and after bottling for a few months in the bottle.
