Gustave Lorentz Pinot Noir Reserve 2009

Overview

The Pinot Noir Reserve has a light red color, with a nose of lingering red fruit aromas (cherry, blackcurrant, red currant, etc.). The fruit carries through to the palate, making this wine a very approachable un-oaked, fresh Pinot Noir that is refined, enjoyable and extremely food-friendly.

Wine Facts

Winemaker Notes
The grapes come from various hillside vineyards around the village of Bergheim, with a predominance of heavy clay/limestone soil. They are hand-picked, usually around mid- October, with the whole grapes pressed. After 10 days of maceration to extract the color from the skin, the juice finishes fermentation in a tank without skin contact. Malolactic fermentation follows.

Serving Hints
This is an excellent wine for a wide variety of dishes, especially for hot appetizers, barbecue, red and game meats such as duck or venison, charcuterie, light, hard cheeses and red fruit sorbets or pies.
