This Spätburgunder is a Cuvée of Pinot Noir grapes from the vineyards of Malterdinger Bienenberg and Kenzinger Hummelberg. The vines are on average 20 years old and the yield is very low, 37 hl/ha. The bunches are gently destemmed, after which they are soaked with peels and already for 4 weeks in open French wooden tubs. This is where alcoholic fermentation takes place. After this first fermentation, the free-run juices and the juices obtained by soft pressing are aged separately in French oak barrels. The wines undergo their malolactic fermentation in the barrels. No fining takes place, the wines become clear through natural sedimentation. After assembling, the wine is bottled unfiltered.
This top Pinot Noir wine combines well with fine and light meat or poultry, with pâtés, but also with fish and light cheeses.

Shelter Winery is the life work of Silke and Hans-Bert Espe. With their savings, they once bought a few plots around Kenzingen, a stone's throw from Kaiserstuhl. Without material, such as a tractor, and without a basement, they plunged into this adventure. At that time they rented an old bunker (hence the name Shelter) for the vinification of their wines. Now they make the most beautiful red wines and belong with their small domain, now established in a brand new wine company, from barely 4.5 hectares to the top of the German red wines.
