Pinot Noir 2015
Pinot is the youngest child among Fritz red wines, though the vineyard has been planted already in 1995 and each year reliably produces excellent Pinots, with plenty of typical varietal character and dense tannins.
Vines grow on deep loess soils and feel very comfortable here, with a certain amount of lime providing a plus to this Burgundian noble grape. Harvested on Oct. 20th, the must ferments in tank and the wine ages in big used wooden barrels for at least 11 months. Gault Millau listed Josef’s wine among the best Pinot coming from Austria. 13% AbV, TA 5,5 g/l, RS 1,0.
