Wijndomein Pietershof

Pinot Noir Crindael 2018


Storied Raspberry & Spice

An ultra-limited-production Pinot Noir with only 400 bottles produced, this Belgian red is a treasure for the winemaker. Aged for 1 year in a single French oak barrel, the 2018 Pinot Noir developed beautiful notes of pepper, vanilla, and mushrooms with compelling fruit flavors like crushed berries and plums. A touch of spice and star annise give it lend it complexity.

Founded in 2000 by cello-playing Dutchman Piet Akkermans and succeeded by Albert Meijer, Wijndomein Pietershof produces fresh, mineral-driven wines that are truly made in the vineyard. Learn more
