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.
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.
