Dry Pinot Noir from sunny Baden by the famous Leitz winery, zero alcohol - all pleasure
There are recorded documents linking the Leitz family winemaking history all the way back to 1744. Johannes Leitz currently manages. His Grandfather, Josef Leitz re-built the winery, which has been completely destroyed after a bombing raid during the Second World War.
The vineyard is located in the middle of Baden. The most Southerly and best place in Germany to grow and ripen red grapes.
To remove the alcohol from the wine, Leitz have used the Spinning Cone Column. In order to preserve the natural Pinot Noir flavours, they chose this modern technique. It allows extraction of alcohol under extremely low pressure and temperature (around 35°C). No flavours will be lost through the treatment of the wine through the dealcoholisation process.
Tasting Note: The Zero-Point-Five offers clean and fresh with notes of red currant and cherries; nicely integrated tannic structure and an almost dry finish, which is remarkably long. An impressive wine.
