    Product information

    ABOUT THIS WINE:

    This sparkling Pinot Noir is from young vines grown on sandstone slopes, 350-400 metres above sea level. Grapes are 70% destemmed and 30% whole bunch with fermentation for 14 days before pressing and ageing for 8 months in old 300 & 500 litre oak barrels.

    ABOUT THIS PRODUCER:

    Andi Knauss has long known he wanted to be a vigneron. After wine school and a stage in Austria (where
    Andi learned how to work organically in the vineyard, and to care for the soil) he took over the reins at Weingut Knauss in 2004.  The vineyards are worked naturally, and winemaking is careful and conscientious. Natural fermentations and minimal sulfur are the norm throughout the range, and some cuvees see no sulfur at all.

    Andi, who is in his early thirties, runs a tight ship, making wine from over a hundred different plots in Strümpfelbach, the village where the winery is located, and a few surrounding villages in the hills around the river Rems. These hills are composed of different types of limestone of different eras, basically layered on top of each other, changing with the altitude, between 300 and 400 meters above sea level. Vineyard land here is expensive, but Andi has slowly built up the estate parcel by parcel, selecting the best sites to be blended into the "Selection" and "Reserve" bottlings.
