The Affental grape-growing land belongs to the viticultural area of Baden, Germany’s southern-most wine-growing regions. Over the centuries this became Affental, which means Valley of the Monkeys. The original monkey bottle has been a brand symbol of the Affental Viticultural Cooperative since 1949. Since then it has reached cult status among numerous wine lovers across Germany and the United States. This Pinot Noir is harvested later in a colder climate than normal leading to a sweeter, more full bodied wine. The wine features ripe aromas of cherries and berries with a powerful yet harmonious body.
