Weingut Abraham’s Pinot Noir is a red wine from the Eppan wine region in South Tyrol that impresses with its refined elegance and harmonious balance. It is vinified and aged in oak barrels for at least 20 months.
The nose presents notes of small red fruits, sweet spices, black cherries and hints of forest. The palate is noble and forthright, with fine tannins and great finesse.

This Pinot Noir grows on glacial moraine soils from the last ice age, which are mixed with volcanic rocks consisting of quartz porphyries with high mineral content.
The best ripe and healthiest grapes are selected and hand-picked in three passes, destemmed and transported via a chute to a 2,000-liter fermentation vat. Spontaneous fermentation then takes place thanks to natural yeasts. After about three weeks of contact with the must with daily manual punching down, the red wine is gently crushed and clarified by natural sedimentation. Further expansion takes place in 500-liter oak barrels that are 50% new and 50% used. After malolactic fermentation (MAD), the wine is kept on fine lees for another 20 months. This is followed by bottling without microfiltration.
A beautiful ruby red shines in the glass. The complex, fruity aroma is reminiscent of raspberries, black cherries and preserved cranberries, blood orange and underbrush. Delicate and well-structured, this simple and unique Pinot Noir convinces on the palate with present and natural tannins and a surprising freshness and fruity sweetness. Very mineral, long and elegant in the finish.
