A red dry organic and biodynamic wine from Pinot Noir grapes. Notes of juicy red cherries, ripe raspberries, hint of bread, bacon, and tart orange dominate this well-balanced, delicious palate. Ripe, slightly warm, partly preserved fruit on the palate, herbaceous and moderate salty notes, integrated tannins, light bite, good persistence, very delicate hint of mushrooms, floral and some almonds traces, earthy and mineral traces, clear contours, light toasted notes on a very good finish. You could pair it with red meat cooked with herbs or smoked meat.

Founded in 2007 by Sven Enderle and Florian Moll and located in Baden, Germany. After a year of preparation, they decided to take the risk in early 2007 and started their own small winery. Sven and his partner Florian Moll have taken on the meticulous cultivation of as many parcels of older vines as they can manage, doing much of the work by hand and without synthetic chemicals. However, their work has not exactly won many friends in the nearby villages, as their methods conflict with the power structure of the Ettenheimer Winzergenossenschaft, the local cooperative that dominates the region. Their winemaking style is also viewed with suspicion by locals who have spent much of the past few decades investing in modern winemaking technology. Enderle and Moll did little to their wines beyond foot-stomping the grapes and de-stemming some of the clusters. In 2013, there was no capitalisation. Most of the reds have a 2-3-week period of maceration/fermentation and then spend a year in used barrique they purchase from Domaine Dujac in Burgundy. However, their Pinot Noirs are not Burgundian in style ‘Liaison Comes from 45 to 50-year-old vines planted in limestone/sandstone.
