2017 Brand Bros Pinot Noir 'Pur'

Pfalz, Germany

Grown on the grand (small) hill behind their estate in Pfalz, Germany, the Brand Brothers produce this exceptional Pinot Noir. This is our favourite Pinot of 2018. Pretty roses, light cherries and oak on the nose. In the mouth it's dark, vibrant, crunchy, fresh and light-medium acidity. The farming is certified organic and, like all the other Brand “pur” wines, the Pinot Noir is made with no added sulfur. The vines here are up to 40 years old, and the grapes see a week of cold maceration followed by a week of fermentation on the skins with occasional punchdowns, no pump-overs. Finally, it’s aged for about 8 months in old 500-litre barrels, called halbstück in the Pfalz.

About the maker

Daniel and Jonas have completely converted their vineyard to organic over the years and refined their winemaking skills, producing exceptional German natural wines.

Established in 1891 as a mixed agriculture business, Weingut Brand now comprises 18 hectares under vine and is run by young gun’s Daniel and Jonas Brand. Since 1994 the farming has been done without the use of any herbicides or pesticides and in 2015 it was fully converted to organics, official certification will be granted in 2018.

Daniel, 27, apprenticed for 3 years at wineries in the Pfalz area as well as studying winemaking. Jonas, 23, also has been studying, but apprenticed in Austria with Alwin Jurtschitsch. His time in Austria seeded the idea of making a German Pet Nat. They took over at the winery in 2014. The Pur Range are all unfined, unfiltered and with no additions, including sulphur and as such under German law the wines are unable to be labeled as Pfalz.
