Purple with a dark violet rim. Intensive nose of cherries and black pepper. Stewed sour cherries completed by a hint of vanilla and lilac, sun-warmed dark berries. Dry, vivacious-juicy classic Blaufränkisch-fruit, finely wound tannin structure, inviting flavours of dark berries and cherries with a zesty-animating finish. Typical 2006 extract sweetness.
We start out with the always excellent Martini-goose, continue with Sbrinz and ripe Emmentaler as well as paprika chicken and finish with a bean stew – with lavish chilli – and finish with a generous sip of Blaufränkisch – we are not on the run….
