2019 Pinot Noir - Rheinhessen (250mL)
A beautiful and enticing cool climate Pinot Noir. Ripe flavors of cranberry and cherry are enhanced by hints of baking spices and charred wood. This Massal Selection Pinot Noir was planted and grown sustainably by our winemakers, Nico and Laura Espenschied, on their family estate in Flonheim, Germany. The grapes were hand-picked and fermented in open tonneau by native yeasts. We let the wine soften and age for 18 months in large oak tonneau.
