This red wine resident in Austria takes pleasure at the warm slopes of the Vinschgau Valley and gains bigger and bigger popularity. We love the special fruit and the decent drinking fun in this wine which has something to offer as a young red wine with some months of Barrique maturation.
The flagship of the Marinushof is the Pinot Noir stored in the small oaken barrel. With strict selection in the vineyard this red wine becomes more intensive, more spicy, more complex. The oaken barrels are partly new, partly used, because the Pinot's fruit must have priority. With the strong profit limitation in the vineyard the wine wins in depth and strength. A Pinot who makes us a lot of joy and can be stored long.
