TN : Loimer Terrassen Pinot Noir 2010, Weingut Loimer, Niederösterreich, Austria

 The grapes for this wine come from two sites. Firstly, the Kittmannsberg (50%) which consists of 11 year old vines on humus-loess soils at 250 metres above sea level facing East. Secondly, Hasel (50%) which consists of young and 20 year old vines planted on loess soils with medium-textured clay that are also facing East.

The grapes were harvested through careful hand-selection in mid-October. Fermentation took place in open tanks and wooden vats. This was followed by pressing approximately 14 days later. Then, after spending six months on yeast lees in small 300 and 500 litre barrels, the wine was transferred into large wooden barrels (1250 litres), where it remained for another 4 months before being bottled in September 2011. The residual sugar in this wine is 1.0 grammes per litre, and acidity is 4.9 grammes per litre. This wine was sealed with a glass stopper.

This wine was imported by Gullberg by Stockwine AB.
