In the first years of the winery many Pinot Noir vines were planted. Contrary to the top wines of the “Simonroth”-series, which are made from very old vines, this wine from the young vineyards was called the second cru - "young vines". The vines have become older, but the term has been preserved as a brand for the fresh Pinot Noir of the vinery.
In the glass silky shiny, in clear brightening cherry red.
It smells of violets, porcini mushrooms, pine needles, fresh hazelnuts and air-dried ham. Delicate fruit notes such as sour cherry, Morello cherry and plum stand out clearly.
The structure on the palate is characterized by the lively acidity, grippy tannin structure and long-lasting freshness, accompanied by fine fruit notes. Great drinking fun and nice length!
Traditional fermentation with whole bunches, 3 weeks on the mash, ageing in (30%) new and (70%) used oak barrels of 300 litres for 18 months.
Elegant solo-sipper, pair with fine autumnal cuisine, game, wild poultry, fish, roast, meat pie, Swabian “Vesper”, root vegetables and mushrooms
