Prior Red 2022

This wine is a selection of our pinot noir clones from our vineyards bearing this grape variety that contains only the wines from the highest rated barrels. This wine shows a precise and sophisticated action presenting the full scale of the opportunities inherent in this variety. Its essence is manifested by its elegance.

The harvested grapes were destemmed but not crushed, then selected by an optical sorting machine and put in stainless steel tanks. A cold maceration below 7°C and without fermentation was started first in order to concentrate the fruitiness during one week before fermentation. The fermented mash was pressed and the wine was put into mainly new 228 litre Hungarian barrels to be aged there for 9 months. During that period, the samples from the barrels were tasted but also classified regularly. The wines from the highest rated barrels were finally blended for this selection. The aging potential of this wine is exceptional.
