Pannonhalmi Apatsagi Pinceszet Pinot Noir 2006
At the time of building their church and monastery on the Sacred Hill of Pannonia in 996, the Benedictine monks also revived the viticulture of the region developed by the Romans. Pannonhalmi Pinot Noir comes from three vineyards, Szeldomb, Tavaszo, and Babszoko, that have high concentrations of lime. However, due to their various locations, the grapes in these vineyards go through different stages of maturation at the same time. According to Pannonhalmi's philosophy, these natural conditions should benefit from the combination of diverse technologies to make an extremely distinctive and individual Pinot Noir that perfectly represents this wine region.
This wine is characterized by a deep Burgundy red color with a late cherry scent. Delicate, mellow aroma. Soft tannins, elegant body, long, and ripe sour cherry and raspberry flavors. Recommended with dark meats, primarily duck or lamb dishes.
