on a sensorial level Pinot Kors® wine is similar to the parental variety Pinot Noir. The aromatic profile opens with delicate floral notes reminiscent of rose, and transforms into intense notes of red fruits and spices. The polyphenolic profile is more than excellent for quality, intensity and roundness and for the high anthocyanin content. It is conducive to wines of medium to long refinement period.
in 2018 Pinot Kors® VCR won the gold medal, with 94 points out of 100, at the International PIWI WINE AWARD in Germany.
