Red wine


Variety: Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is the French synonym for Blue Burgundy. It is without doubt one of the greatest red wine varieties of the world. This variety is very difficult to cultivate. The berries are very dense and therefore susceptible to rot. The winegrower needs to pay special attention to this variety throughout the whole growing season. Pinot Noir is characterized by its shiny ruby red color and its rounded, mild and velvety taste. Its fine acidity makes it full-bodied and elegant and enables a longer storage.

Tasting: rubin granat, fine Burgundy scent, red berries, raspberries, juicy-sweet berries, tobacco-spicy nuances, fine tannin, delicately spicy long reverberation.

Best served with: garlic lamb chop, roast veal in milk with pasta, larded roast venison, venison medallions, wild boar goulash with chanterelle, Burgundy roast, stewed lamb leg.

  • Vinyard Umriss

    The highest elevation of the Grossriede “Umriss” is planted with our Burgundies. The limestone and shell limestone soils create perfect conditions for great,  wines.

  • Aging potential

    strong Pinots have always had their place with us. Wonderful for long storage and bottle aging, which only show their full potential over the decades.

  • Pinot Gris white but different

    Orange Pinot Gris Ried Kreften was fermentated on the mash (whole berries). Due to the contact with the grape skin, the wines get a more intense color and more tannin.
