Vinification of the Meyer-Näkel Pinot noir precoce
The balanced Pinot noir precoce from Germany is a single varietal wine, pressed from the grape variety Pinot noir precoce. The Pinot noir precoce is an Old World wine in the best sense of the word, because this German wine exudes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underlines the success of Old World wines. The fact that the Pinot noir precoce grapes thrive under the influence of a rather cool climate also has an influence on the ripening of the grapes that cannot be dismissed. This manifests itself, among other things, in particularly long and even grapes and rather moderate alcohol content in the wine. The berries for this red wine from Germany, after ensuring optimal ripeness, are harvested exclusively by hand . After the hand harvest, the grapes quickly reach the press house. Here they are sorted and carefully ground. Then fermentation takes place in small wood at controlled temperatures. Fermentation is followed by aging for several months in oak barrels.
