The family owned and operated estate Hanewald-Schwerdt was founded in 1955 in Leistadt. Today, cousins Thomas Hanewald and Stephen Schwerdt focus on growing Riesling and Pinot Noir. The secret of their handcrafted wines is a unique limestone reef which dominates all the sites around Leistadt. A hidden treasure away off the beaten track, the vines are old and surrounded by a protected natural resort in the shade of the Haardt mountains. Strawberry and cherry flavours with good minerality, this is a wonderful, easy drinking red.

English organic Pinot Noir, grown on a south facing sandy clay soil site. The 2018 vintage was one of the ripest years we have ever seen, with flavours of cherries and blackberry, a good dark colour and plenty of depth. It can be drunk now, or kept for up to 3 years to develop more complex flavours and a mellow character. Some hints of oak may emerge after a year or so. It benefits from opening a hour or two (or more) before you want to drink it.
