Konzelmann Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir

Niagara-on-the-Lake

12 Alcohol

Introduction

Konzelmann has an interesting and long history in Canadian viticulture. Friederich Konzelmann established his family restaurant and winery in Germany in 1893. Current proprietor, Herbert Konzelmann, took over the operation in 1958. Herbert continued to increase production and profitability soon reaching the capacity of the winery. On a vacation to Canada in the 1980's, Herbert discovered the Niagara region and purchased a peach orchard. Ignoring his critics, he re-planted the orchard to a vineyard. At the time, Herbert had established the 7th winery in the area, making Konzelmann one of the pioneers of Canadian viticulture. The next generation of Konzelmann is now ready to take the reigns as Herbert's grandson, Fabian Reis, is part of the production team. Newly released, the 2014 is ready to enjoy today, or by 2017. Serve chilled to 16 degrees Celsius.


How it looks

Medium to light core that fades to a watery rim. The colour is a rusty current, not quite ruby.

How it smells

Strong aromas that remind us of the holidays. Cranberry, currant, ripe plums, dried berries, soft spice, nutmeg and brown sugar, combine into a festive fruit cake.

How it tastes

Incredibly approachable with a lighter body, soft tannin, moderate acidity and a fleshy, ripe, sweet fruitiness. The tart berries have transitioned to fresh wild raspberry. We lose some of the spice and brown sugar from the nose and are introduced to a rose petals and roasted beets.

Recommended food pairing

Great on it's own, a perfect party wine to enjoy with family over the holidays.
