Muschelkalk 2018

£52.00

A Wine That

is enchanting and vibrant yet honest and pure all at the same time. 'Muschelkalk' is the local synonym for fossile shell limestone, a match made in heaven for Pinot Noir. Drinking this reminds us of the greats in Volnay or Chambolle Musigny's of this planet.

Pinot Noir

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?
