The name Pfarrwingert goes back to the Catholic Church of Dernau, that is still land owner in this land parcel. The especially favourable southwards exposition the slope angle and the soil that is easily to warm up cause an advantageous micro climate in this vineyard.
The high percentage of greywacke and slate is partially decomposed to a sand stone like structure. Pfarrwingert creates extremely aromatic fruity and subtle wines with an elegant flavour.
Old vines, meticulous vineyard work, consistent yield reduction and careful hand-picking. Harvest of the fully ripe grapes with a yield of 30hl/ha gentle treatment, ageing in barrique for about 16 months (70% new oak) and stored for 6 months in the bottle.
Tasting notes: This wine is affected by the aroma of dark cherries, wild blackberries and ripe raspberries and blueberries. This intense fruit is underlined by a soft roasted aroma and violets. it is full bodied and long with an elegant tannin structure.
