Surprising aromas of lilacs & blackcurrants give an indication that this wine is going to be very different from its more everyday version. A rich mouthful of dark cherries with secondary notes on the mid-palate of liquorice & spice. Subtle tannins & a satisfying weighty finish make this a treat of a wine.
The vineyards are situated around Oberwaltersdorf consisting of 40 year-old vines.
The grapes were hand-picked in mid-October, all were crushed, left on skins for 3 weeks & fermented with selected yeasts. 100% aging in oak barrels, 30% used from about 12 -18 months.
