Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir is the German name of Pinot Noir, one of the world's most celebrated wines for centuries. The grape cluster is small and cylindrical, vaguely shaped like a pine cone. Some viticultural historians believe this shape may have given rise to the name.

Pinot Noir tends to produce narrow trunks and branches. In the winery it is sensitive to fermentation methods, yeast strains and is highly reflective of its terroir with different regions producing very different wines. Its thin skin makes it highly susceptible to bunch rot and other fungal diseases. The wines themselves are prone to downy mildew, leaf roll, and fanleaf.

These complications have given the grape the reputation of being difficult to grow. The tremendously broad range of bouquets, flavours, textures and impressions that Pinot noir can produce sometimes confuses tasters.

In the broadest terms, the wine tends to be of light to medium body with an aroma reminiscent of black cherry, raspberry or currant. Traditional red Burgundy is famous for its fleshy, 'farmyard' aromas, which is comparable with the Pinot Noir made by Fürst Winery, but changing fashions and new easier-to-grow clones have favoured a lighter, fruitier style. The grape's color when young, often compared to that of garnet, is often much lighter than that of other red wines.
