Crescentia Hollenberg Spatburgunder Dry Red 2013

 

Tasting Note

A sublime Pinot Noir with ripe, wild, red berry fruit - concentrated and with great depth. On the palate is a touch of spice, followed by blacker fruit - all wrapped up with juicy acidity and lovely fine tannins.

Producer Details

The monastery at Kloster Eberbach (Rheingau) was established by Cistercian monks from Burgundy in 1136, bringing with them vines, expertise and laying the foundation for Pinot Noir production in Germany. Today the estate, managed by Dieter Greiner covers 500 acres (380 acres Riesling / 80 acres Pinot Noir) and as a founding member of the VDP (Germany's finest estates) it’s acclaimed by journalists worldwide. The estate's vineyards sites along the Rhine are managed by Stefan Seyffardt, including the monopole of Steinberg, Centgericht and Neroberg.

In The Vineyard

'Hollenberg' derives from the old German word meaning 'heap' or 'precipice'. This steep vineyard is almost entirely violet-coloured slate and stone - similar to that found in the Steinberg vineyard.

In The Winery

Spends 9 months in German oak barrels.

Food Recommendations

Serve with braised meats or venison.
