Shelter, Pinot Noir Baden 2018
A fresh floral nose with crushed raspberry, and a healthy dash of spice lead to a generous, ripe wine with pointed acidity and very fine elegant tannins.
The vineyard and cellar work is just as straightforward. No herbicides or pesticides are used in the vineyards; harvest is done completely by hand. In the cellar, a short cold soak is followed by a delicate press (normally the stems are removed, though this can differ from vintage to vintage) and fermentation in open-top vessels. Once fermentation is complete, the juice is transferred into barrel, with the few new barrels being outnumbered by those with up to five years of age.
Hans-Bert Espe and Silke Wolf are two Northerners who met while studying winemaking at Geisenheim and decided to found their own estate in 2003. They made their first wines in a bunker on an abandoned Canadian airfield (hence the name) and have since built themselves a winery based on the same design. They have vineyards with old vines in the villages of Kenzingen and Malterdingen, and produce some of the best wines of the region.
