Growing up in the Mosel, it is only natural that one of Andreas' loves is Pinot Noir (or Spätburgunder as the Germans call Pinot Noir). This wine is an excellent example of Spätburgunder with charming aromas of red fruits and blackberry, spice and cedarwood on the palate, ending in a spicy clove finish complemented by some rich vanilla and caramel from time on oak. It is elegant and softly tannic.

Grown organically in Pfalz, the fruit is transported to the winery in Bender's home village of Leiwen. It undergoes spontaneous fermentation and is aged in a mixture of stainless steel tanks and oak barrels.

Andreas Bender

Andreas grew up roaming the vineyards of the Mosel wherehis family were grafting vines. It is no surprise he beganmaking wine when he was 13! His wine experiences include time in the U.S., France, Italy and at Geisenheim University as a scholar inoenology and viticulture. Today he manages 35 hectares of his own vineyards. His grapes are picked and hand-sorted, to ensure the highest quality of juice. The unconventional use of retired oak barrels can be a bit hit ormiss, but for Andreas, it has been a hit. Andreas'contemporary attitude comes through in the Bender labeldesign and accessible, fun wines. He takes Pfalz andMosel's traditional grapes, cool climate, and slate soils and uses them to create impeccably balanced wines.
