Classic Pinot Noir aromas of red berry and wild strawberry. Bright crunchy acidity and supple red fruit producing a light-bodied wine finely balanced by smooth tannins.

Manuscripts dating from the 13th century show that red grapes were being cultivated at the Eberbach monastery even then. It's thought that the Cistercian monks brought the Pinot Noir vines with them, from their home in Burgundy, thus introducing them to Germany.

The monastery at Kloster Eberbach in the Rheingau was established by Cistercian monks from Burgundy in 1136, bringing with them vines and expertise, and laying the foundation for Pinot Noir production in Germany. Today the estate, managed by Dieter Greiner, covers 200 hectares (150ha planted to Riesling and 30ha to Pinot Noir) and as a founding member of the VDP (Germany's finest estates) it is acclaimed by journalists worldwide. The estate's vineyard sites along the Rhine are managed by Stefan Seyffardt, including the monopoles of Steinberg, Centgericht and Neroberg.

The Pinot Noir grapes are selected from vineyards in the villages of Rudesheim and Assmannshausen. After fermentation in stainless steel, the wine is matured in 1,200 and 2,400 litre oak barrels for around 12 months.

Try with venison and other roasted meats.
