Abarbanel Pinot Noir

Abarbanel Pinot NoirAbarbanel goes "Sideways" with our second vintage of Pinot Noir. The new 2008 vintage is carrying on our tradition of offering the only kosher Pinot Noir from France's Alsace region. Ninety percent of the grapes in cultivation in Alsace are white wine grapes such as Gewurztraminer and Riesling. With a mere 10 percent of Pinot Noir grapes planted, Pinot Noir is a rarity in Alsace in general. Kosher Pinot Noir is an even more special and boutique production. The cool high-elevation climate of Alsace is excellent for Pinot Noirs. This is produced in very limited quantities so be sure and grab some soon while supplies last.

This Pinot was fermented on its skins for 10 days with daily pumping over and an average of three releases during maceration. 100% stainless steel. Under the strict Orthodox supervision of the Badatz of Strasbourg. Mevushal. Value priced. Excellent with poultry, veal, light pastas, salads, red snapper, trout. Smooth berry fruit, easy finish.

Abarbanel Pinot Noir Alsace 2005
"Light, almost dilute cherry red in color but aromatic and with appealing berry, cherry fruits. Nothing complex here but pleasant enough for brunches or picnics. Drink now."
