Today's approximately 400 members farm 140 hectares of vineyards in the Ahr's steep, slate slopes, and their average yearly output is about 1,000,000 liters. Of their production, 60% is pinot noir.
Since their merger with another coop, the official name of their new coop is Mayschosser/Altenahr, however, 'Mayschosser Weinkeller' is still visible on the label drawings.
This is a great example of an inexpensive pinot noir from Germany that is a great quality-to-value wine.
aromas of herbs, dried wood, and plumfruit, bright on the palate with crunch acid and pleasant ripe phenolics.
