This red wine is a food loving pinot from the Pfalz. Luscious at times, but serious at the right moments. Flavors of juicy red apple, fleshy plum and a handful of strawberries. Best served slightly chilled. Pinot Noir from Pfalz in Germany.
Aged in French oak barrels for 24 months
Pfalz is not just Germany’s second biggest wine region but also part of Germany’s wine route (with the lovely name ‘Weinstrasse’). Famous for its Riesling grapes but experimental as we are - we went for Spätburgunder grapes from this region.
Spätburgunder grapes from Germany. Did you know that Spätburgunder is the German variant of the Pinot Noir? This makes Germany the third largest producer of 'Pinot Noir' in the world. The grape has is a late (translated: spät) ripening pinot (from Burgundy: Burgunder).
The story behind the bottle
As an urban winery, we’ve decided not to import but wine but grapes itself. Which sounds fun, but can be challenging when you’re the first in your country and you have no example. The grapes in this wine were actually our first grapes and delivered by German farmer Stefan, who came up with a clever solution to deliver that first batch of grapes. Clever and lean like a fox, hence the name Fantastic Mr. Fox.
