The grapes used for this wine originate from the Ihringer Winklerberg which is recognised as the warmest vineyard site in Germany. Due to strict reduction of yields, the distinctive terroir character, and the unique micro climate, this wine meets the highest requirements in the way as it is common for "Grand Cru" appellations in France. After traditional mash fermentation process, this wine has been aged for 18 months in mainly new barrique barrels to refine its character.
Tasting notes: Extraordinarily savoury and tightly knit bouquet of red cherries, red current, preserved raspberries and strawberries, and sticking hints of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice and vanilla. A secrete tough of wood and smoke adds additional complexity. Prefoundly robust approach on the palate, full of character and wine fine warmth and grip. Great personality and firm backbone. Well-structured by a ripe and fine-grained tannin. A striking grip of fine acidity ensures long ageing potential. Multi-layered aroma of dried red plums and forest berries potpourri.
Food recommendation: A perfect partner with sophisticated meat dishes, especially when herbs or roast aromas play a major role. Equally good with game and various types of savoury cheeses.
