A fine nose of cherries, red currant fruit and spices. Elegant but well structured on the palate with a creamy texture and a long, crisp finish. A beautiful example of red wine fruit from the Old World with the sort of refinement only Pinot Noir can deliver.

Situated in the Assmannshausen in the Rheingau region, the wine estate of August Kesseler consists of vineyard sites in Lorch, on the slopes of the hills around R?desheim and in the area called ?Assmansh?user H?llenberg?. August Kesseler took over the estate from his parents in 1977 as a young man, and has qualitatively expanded the best area under vines to 18 hectares (44.48 acres). The manor house and cellar are situated directly on the slate outcrops of the ?Assmansh?user H?llenberg?. Experience gained in winegrowing regions in the USA and France has taught August Kesseler the value in placing great importance on quality ? improving measures in the vineyard and in the cellar. The quality of a wine has its origins in the vineyard. As well as the reputation of a vineyard site, which is historically, climatically and geographically, founded, the crucial factor here is the rigidly controlled quality-oriented running of the vineyards.
