Purple with a dark violet rim. Intensive nose of cherries and black pepper. Stewed sour cherries completed by a hint of vanilla and lilac, spicy-dense, Sun-warmed dark berries. Dry, vivacious-juicy Blaufränkisch-fruit, very classic style, finely-wound tannin structure, inviting flavours of dark berries and cherries with a zesty-animating finish. Juicy and fiery notes deriving from chalky loam soils. Fruity and dense – the “heart and soul”.
We start out with the always excellent Martini-goose, continue with Sbrinz and mature Emmentaler and finish with Linguine and red Pesto, match it with roasted deer liver and paprika chicken, try some bean stew – with lavish chilli – and finish with a generous sip of Blaufränkisch from perfect Blaufränkisch soils – we are not on the run …
