One Idea

In the Schaffhausen Blauburgunderland, the winegrowers regularly compare and discuss their wines. They criticize, praise and, of course, talk shop. During one of such a gathering, the four winemakers came up with the idea of assembling their best Pinot Noirs into one wine. «Element 5» was created from one idea and four Pinot Noirs.

One Grape

The Pinot Noir grape is probably one of the most demanding grape types available. Many experts therefore call it the “Queen of Grapes”. Only the right terroir, the know-how and the careful handling of this grape allow great wines to mature. The almost inexhaustible spectrum of Pinot Noir allows a wide variety of finish options.

Characteristics

Deep ruby red with dark complexes. Playful cherry fruit paired with notes of tobacco, fiery and slightly spicy aromas. Very complex on the palate, rich in aromas, elegant and fine-grained tannins, full-bodied with elegant aftertaste.
