10% whole bunch are hand-selected on sorting tables and fermented in stainless steel vats (maceration carbonique) at 22-28o C for 10 days on the skins. The rest is destemmed and fermented in open oak vats for 14 days. After malolactic fermentation the wine of about 13.5% alcohol is matured for 16 months in 228ℓ s French oak barrels with 30% new wood.
Style and maturity: The Feldspar Pinot Noir has a bright red colour. The bouquet is complex with scents recalling wild berries, spice, sour cherries and violets. On the palate the wine shows medium body with fruit flavours balanced elegantly bt tannins in a long finish.
