Growing up in the Mosel, it is only natural that one of Andreas' loves is Pinot Noir (or Spätburgunder as the Germans call Pinot Noir). This wine is an excellent example of Spätburgunder with charming aromas of red fruits and blackberry, spice and cedarwood on the palate, ending in a spicy clove finish complemented by some rich vanilla and caramel from time on oak. It is elegant and softly tannic.
Grown organically in Pfalz, the fruit is transported to the winery in Bender's home village of Leiwen. It undergoes spontaneous fermentation and is aged in a mixture of stainless steel tanks and oak barrels.
