Leitz Zero Point Five Pinot Noir (Non Alc.)

SKU
EWPN202010 UCAU
From award winning winemaker, Johannes Leitz from the world-famous vineyards of the Rüdesheim region in Germany comes Zero Point Five, a premium alcohol-free Pinot Noir made from 100% Pinot Noir (Spätburgunder) grapes grown in Germany. It is an exceptionally rich and distinctive non-alcoholic red wine. The taste on the palette is of berries and strawberry and shows the pinot noir character beautifully. Drink it slightly chilled and that immediately makes it the ideal red summer wine or at room temperature, 16°. The alcohol is removed through a gentle vacuum distillation by means of a spinning cone, which preserves the natural and fruity Pinot Noir aromas. During that process, the alcohol is extracted at a temperature of 29°. Due to this low temperature, no taste is lost.

Germany

Germany is fully capable of producing some of the world's great white wines. One hundred years ago the demand for and thus prices commanded for the wines from the finest vineyards in Piesport, Morcobrunn and Rudesheim rivalled the best wines from Bordeaux. Largely due to the lack of government regulation into the quality of wine output, Germany over the past century became known for producing sweet sugar-water wines at cheap costs, flooding the world market. This has had a negative effect on the perception of German wines worldwide, but rest assured we only choose to stock German wines of high quality.

The Riesling grape with all its versatility is the main grape variety, and whilst many countries make Riesling, none can match the mouth-watering freshness and supreme delicacy achieved in a Mosel Kabinett from a top producer. Germany's dry Rieslings as a rule tend to be very graceful and elegant as compared to Rieslings from other countries, with an emphasis on finesse, not power. Standout producers such as Robert Weil make the headlines, but Donnhoff, JL Wolf, A Christmann and Dr Loosen are too worth seeking out.

Another most interesting contribution from Germany was Eiswine (ice wine), which until the 1970s was a freak of nature, though is now carefully managed. To produce Eiswine, parcels of vines are left out exposed to the frost, and although the production cost is astronomical they remain very popular. Robust Pinot Blancs and Pinot Gris are also produced in the whites and Pinot Noir, referred to as Spätburgunder is also grown.

The climate in Germany is, for the most part, cool, the exception being in the Pfalz and in Baden. As a result, vineyards are carefully selected with good sunlight exposure a must. For example along the banks of the Mosel River, vines are only planted on one side, as there isn't enough sunlight exposure to ripen grapes on the north-facing side.

Key regions include Mosel and Nahe where extraordinary Rieslings are produced.

Rudesheim

Rüdesheim is a German winemaking town within the esteemed Rheingau wine region. Its winegrowing history dates back to Roman times. Located at the foot of the Niederwald on the Rhine River's right bank, it is also part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site for this region. Steep-sloped and with slate- and quartz-rich soils, Rüdesheim is home to many of Rheingau’s vineyards, with the most well-reputed sites just west of the town on the banks above the river. Here, the dominant planting is Riesling, and most of these wines are made in a dry, medium- to full-bodied style that boasts robust minerality and stone-fruit aromas and flavours.

About the brand Weingut Leitz

Under the direction of Johannes Leitz, Weingut Josef Leitz has earned the reputation of being one of Rheingau’s top growers and moreover, one of the finest producers in Germany. Since taking over his family estate in 1985, Johannes has grown his holdings from 2.6 hectares to over 40, most of which are Grand Cru sites on the slopes of the Rüdesheimer Berg. Once the home of some of the world’s most sought after and expensive wines, the region fell to mediocrity in the years following the Second World War. Josi has made it his life’s work to reclaim the intrinsic quality of his native terroir and introduce the world to the true potential of the Rheingau. From the 2011 vintage, Leitz began to designate the pre-1971 parcel names on select bottlings, reviving the individual voices of “Hinterhaus” (Rottland), “Ehrenfels” (Schlossberg), and “Katerloch” (Roseneck). He has also resurrected the once neglected site of Kaisersteinfels, which has become one of the most sought-after wines of the Rheingau. “Der Kaiser” sits high, just beneath the forest line of the Rüdesheimer-Berg, with a spectacular view overlooking the confluence of the Nahe and Rhein Rivers. The singular terroir on the westernmost point of the Rheingau is composed of quartzite, very old grey slate, as well as some iron-rich red slate and produces wines with incredible complexity and length. In 2011 Johannes was recognized by the esteemed Gault Millau as “Winemaker of the Year.” We could not be more excited to be a small part of the Leitz project. We believe that these are some of the finest white wines in the world.
