Purple, intensive cherry-coloured rim, almost Baroque viscosity. Complex aroma spectrum displaying black heart cherries, chilled blackberry jus, peppercorn, bark of oak, black pepper, hibiscus, cedars, notes of blackthorn, vaguely perceptible hints of juniper. Dry, powerfully structured with substantial smooth tannins which appear as if covered with dark nougat. Characteristic and inviting. Substantial structure and real power, lavish presence. Animating fruit sweetness supported by “Rust minerality”, dressed up with a fiery temperament. Long finish with a promising ageing potential. Very serious reserve quality with distinctive vintage characteristics and a special “fun factor”.
Fried cheek of beef with pepper cherries, a thick slice of roast beef with little aside, pairing any type of goose (smoked goose breast with juniper, goose salami, roasted goose), brochettes of Mangalitza pork with smoked bacon and olives, escalope of wild pork spiced with paprika, pepper Pecorino with olive oil and smoked almond bread. Good companion for exciting parts of the movie “Cordoba once more” with Johann K. - from dusk till dawn… You don`t believe it? Just compare it blind with the best Blaufränkisch wines from the Burgenland and thus from all over the world.
