Valentin Pinot Noir AOC 2017SKU: n/a.
CHF11.10 – CHF16.30
Made only from pinot noir grapes, this red wine gets its colour from a 7-10 day maceration (the exact length of time depends upon the vintage). With its subtle aroma of red berries and soft silky tannins our pinot noir is very typical of the region. All of our pinot noir is made in large oak tuns of 1000l. – 4000l. (220 – 880 gallons) in order to soften the natural tannin content without imparting a wooden taste. This wine is perfect with red meat, game and soft cheeses.
The most important red grape grown in Switzerland, the Pinot Noir has been planted in many regions across the world, of which the best known is undoubtedly Burgundy. Like the Chardonnay, the Pinot Noir needs a particular climate to bring out all its potential. When grown in regions that are too hot, the alcoholic content of the wine becomes too high, at the expense of the finesse of its bouquet. High quality production also requires a relatively small number of grapes on each vine.
