Wine: A fine, medium-strength ruby red Spätburgunder (Pinot Noir). On the nose, this wine has scents of juniper berries, wild berries, tobacco, pepper and forest floor. Dense on the palate, it has a strong substance and youthful tannins. Juicy with a very good length and the best structure. This dry red wine has great storage potential.
Vineyard: Becker's 2019 St. Paul Spätburgunder was named after the monastery's former outpost. This south-facing vineyard is located in Weißenburg on a large limestone rock that has loamy-clayey topsoil.
Vinification: The grapes were carefully selected and destemmed by hand, then fermented on the mash. After two to three weeks fermentation in open oak vats, the grapes were gently pressed. The wine then matured for 18 months in small French oak barrels. This Spätburgunder Grand Cru was bottled without filtration and fining of the wine.
Alcohol: 13,5% vol.
