Umathum Unter den Terrassen zu Jois Pinot Noir 2017

$ 58.50

Amazing deeply colored brick-red Pinot Noir redolent with aromas of cloves, raspberries and cocoa. Despite it's dark core, it is remarkably creamy on the palate, full-bodied with ripe and well integrated tannins. The vines grow on limestone-rich clay and fossilized limestone which is very water-retentive, on what was once the beach of the ancient Pannonian sea. Josef Umathum painstakingly rebuilt the ancient sandstone walls that surround these terraces, a testament to his dedication and significant place in the winemaking history of Burgenland. A wine we don't get to see every year, the resulting Pinot Noir is truly special and evocative with elegant structure and balance.
