Bender Pinot Noir

Charming aromas of red fruits and subtle spicy notes accompany an exhilarating ruby colour. The same flavours reappear on the palate and are complemented by rich vanilla and caramel from the time in oak. This wine is a great example of Spätburgunder (as the Germans call Pinot Noir): elegant, structured, soft­ly tannic and long.

Andreas Bender

We are very proud to have German winemaker on our list forthe very first time. For many years, we have been looking fora German winemaker who fits our ethos of independent andquality-focused artisan winemaking. But we knew the winewe dreamt of were out there, so we never stopped looking.

Long hours of research and walking vineyards up and down the Rheingau finally brought us to Andreas Bender, a  winemaker we are proud to work with. Andreas is known to other winemakers as “the Maverick of the Mosel”!

Andreas comes from a winemaking family in the Mosel town of Leiwen. He acquired his 35 ha of vineyards in Pfalz and the Mosel bit by bit from family friends or bought from neighbours as the next generation opts out of winemaking. Andreas is a traditionalist: choosing prime soils, hand-selecting grapes, using time-honoured in the cellar and allowing natural fermentation of his fruit.

His contemporary attitude comes through in the Bender label design and his accessible and fun wines. His Pinot Noir and Riesling ably avoid the pitfalls of intimidating new drinkers and boring connoisseurs. Instead, Andreas Bender takes Pfalz and Mosel’s traditional grapes, cool climate, and
slate soils and uses them to create rich, enticing wines that we are genuinely excited about.

Bender

"The most important thing for me are first-class grapes from the best locations, traditional winemaking and uncompromising quality.” Andreas Bender
