Schloss Halbturn Pinot Noir 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

In der Nase feine, süße Mokka-Röstaromen, ein Hauch von Biskuit über einer einladenden Kirschenfrucht, ein Hauch von Veilchen, zart nach Karamell, sehr verführerisch. Am Gaumen finessenreich strukturiert, wieder reife Herzkirschen, zart nach Orangen, perfekt integriertes Holz, bleibt sehr gut haften, elegant und delikat, sehr gutes Entwicklungspotenzial.

SCHLOSS HALBTURN, the most important Baroque building in the Burgenland which once served as a hunting and summer residence for the Emperor. The birth of the Schloss Halbturn vineyard was in the Jois (Jungenberg). It was here that Count Poth established the first vineyards in the year 1214 by the purchase of 14 farms from the Hungarian Altenburg manor. In 1960, the first vineyard was planted by Baron Paul Waldbott-Bassenheim in an old estate called Wittmannshof at the side of Schloss Halbturn. In 2001 this traditional enterprise close to the Hungarian border was ambitiously restructured. On the initiative of Baroness Marietheres Waldbott-Bassenheim and under the management of Count Markus zu Kœnigsegg, the nephew of the owner’s family, no cost or effort was spared to make the Schloss Halbturn again one of the leading vineyards in the country. Altogether 100 acres of the 160 acres of the whole vineyard were cleared and replanted. In addition, the historic terraces on the Jungenberg were revitalised. In the cellar as well, no stone was left unturned. The result is probably one of the most beautiful cellars in the country in the Bordelais style (chai) and the very best cellar technology. Since its first vintage in 2002, the Schloss Halbturn team has proved its qualities. The honours acquired nationally and abroad demonstrate this (among other awards: the Falstaff Sortensieger 2004, 2005 and 2006, winner of the VINARIA red wine final, winner of the Pinot Noir Cup in Germany, Gold Medals in Japan and London).

Not a classic Pinot Noir. Taste: Alot of spice and pepper. Bouquet: Fresh, fruity and abit mouldy. If it is fairly priced ok. Do not drink it to warm.
