This "1787" Pinot Noir/Gamay blend is the counter part to our "459" blend. The only difference between the two wines (both made with the same exact fruit) is the vessels used to produce them. The "1787" was fermented and aged in neutral oak barrels. The difference in taste and smell is incredible and you just need to taste them side-by-side to see for yourself. In the year 1787, a decree was ordered to remove all red grape varieties in the Mosel Valley and to replace them with Riesling vines. Over time, this law dissipated and red varieties slowly got planted again in the region.
