Weingut Dopler

Pinot Noir



POWERFUL & RUSTIC


Weingut Dopler's Pinot Noir are powerful and rustic yet elegant and silky wines. Weingut Dopler is an Austrian winery, 50 km south of Vienna, in the Thermen region. The vineyard is run and owned today by Günter Dopler, who is the 4th generation of the Dopler family. Weingut Dopler produces both white and red wines, but it is their red wine, and especially those produced on the grapes St.Laurent and Pinot Noir, which is Dopler's great passion. Pinot Noir and St Laurent, which are closely related to Pinot Noir, have good growth conditions in the Thermen region. This is due to both the warm days and the cool nights, but also the calcareous soils contribute to the Pinot Noir grape favorable growth conditions.


KRAFTIG & RUSTIK


Weingut Doplers Pinot Noir er kraftige og rustikke, men alligevel elegante og silkebløde vine. Weingut Dopler er en Østrigsk vingård, 50 km syd for Wien, i Thermenregion. Vingården drives og ejes i dag af Günter Dopler, som er 4 generation af familien Dopler. Weingut Dopler producerer både hvid- og rødvine, men det er deres rødvine, og især dem der er produceret på druerne St.Laurent og Pinot Noir, som er Doplers store passion. Pinot Noir og St Laurent, som er tæt beslægtet med Pinot Noir, har gode vækstbetingelser i Thermenregion. Det skyldes både de varme dage og de kølige nætter, men også de kalkholdige jorde er med til at give Pinot Noir druen gunstige vækstforhold.

General grape descriptions



Pinot Noir


The fashionable red burgundy grape is capable of producing divinely scented, gorgeously fruity expressions of place but often unwilling or unable to do so. Pinot Noir is sensitive to the size of crop it is expected to produce, and many vapid examples exemplify an over-demanding yield. It ripens relatively early so is not suitable for very warm regions where there would be no time to develop interesting flavours before acid levels plummet. On the other hand, many of the cooler regions in which it thrives suffer autumn rains which can rot Pinot's thin-skinned berries, resulting in pale, tainted wines. The Pinot Noir grower's lot is not an easy one.

This ancient eastern French vine is, with Gouais Blanc, parent of a host of other varieties including Chardonnay, Gamay and the Muscadet grape Melon de Bourgogne. Because it is so old, there are many well-established mutations such as Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc and Pinot Meunier and there is enormous variation in wine quality between different clones. Planting the wrong clone in the wrong place is one of many reasons for the wide variation in quality between different red burgundies and different varietal Pinot Noirs from elsewhere.

The positive side of all this is that Pinot Noir is a very transparent grape. It really can communicate the difference in terroir, or grape-growing environment, between adjacent plots of vineyard.
