Dechant is an eastern slope, located just below the Käferberg and constitutes one of the few "red wine isles" of the Kamptal. The medium-textured Loess soil here heats up easily and is well aerated. Underneath this layer is heavy red clay, lends to the ideal growing conditions for the complex Burgundian variety Pinot Noir.

Harvested in September, the grapes go through cold soak macerated for five days to extract fruit, then fermented in wood with natural yeasts. After the pressing, the wine was put into small oak barrels (some new). Following malolactic fermentation, the wine matured in barrels for 11 months and was bottled in September.

Tasting Notes

This wine displays aromas of raspberries with undertones of spice and forest floor. It is elegant and full of character. On the palate, it shows good fruit and concentration. This beautiful, classic varietal is in complete harmony with the terroir of the Kamptal.

Food Pairing

Pair this wine with meat and pasta dishes with lighter sauces.
