"The Pinot Noir macerates for 21 days with pigeage twice a day. The wine is settled for 2-3 days before it is racked by way of gravity into new barrels; the wine is never pumped or filtered. Whereas the limestone Merdinger Bühl displays classical black cherry aromas, the volcanic soils of the Winklerberg tend to be driven by bright red fruit—cranberry and raspberry. Tobacco, chocolate, and brooding mineral structure." —winemaker
"Medium ruby with a purple edge. Wild cherry, cedar and a subtle nuance of damp forest floor on the nose. Harmonious, firm and refreshingly juicy, with wild berry flavors complemented by oak spice and hazelnut. Finishes warm with long. V.B. is the abbreviation for Vordere Berg, an old name that describes the historical heart of the Winklerberg but is not currently allowed to be written on the label. Beginning this year this wine can be labeled Vordere Winklerberg to differentiate it from the Winklerberg, which is now viewed as a premier cru. Drinking window: 2016-2022." —Joel B. Payne, Vinous
