Wine: The grapes used for this wine originate from the Ihringer Winklerberg which is recognized 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 fermentation on the skins, this wine has been aged for 18 months in barriques (80% new french oak) to refine its character.
Tasting notes: Dark cherries and ethereous components like cloves in the nose, very appealing. On the palate warm with dark berries and delicate chocolate flavors. Smooth and mouth filling depth with enjoyable juicy texture, shaded with a well balanced velvety tannin structure. Long lasting finish with hints of violets and cinnamon.
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.
