Where and How?
The vineyards from Sven & Florian are situated in and around the village of Munchweier mainly characterized by limestone and sandstone terroir. Grapes are hand-harvested and usually kept on the skins for a few days before pressing and aging the wines for a further 12-18 months. There is no use of additions throughout the winemaking and in most cuvées no additions at bottling.
The Winemaker: Enderle & Moll
When Pinot Noir drops into a conversation, it’s likely that your mind will drift to the hallowed ground of Burgundy. But there’s a battalion of growers all around the world who are dedicated to creating soul-searching Pinots of their own.
Whether consciously or subconsciously, often this means they’re entering the boxing ring with the Burgundies. But rather than trying to copy their style - by following a certain protocol or by adding new oak - it’s often through simplicity that the most exciting examples are made.
Florian Moll and Sven Enderle have always been about simplicity; although at first, it was simplicity through necessity. They couldn’t afford a fancy crusher, but also — why buy a fancy crusher when you can stomp the grapes with your feet?
