Tasting

Intensive purple with a violet rim, impressive viscosity. Multi-faceted aroma spectrum on the nose displaying black Cormons cherries plus a leaf of mint, almost ethereal dark fruitiness, varieties of pepper, candied blackberries, untamed yet revealing a tranquil depthness, cornelian cherries and kao kao, dry with generous prospects, inviting tannins, finely grained, representing most clearly the ripeness of the vintage. Multi-layered, great substance yet showing unique conciseness. Persistent. Great cool wine from a hot vineyard – the paradoxon of the single vineyard Oberer Wald.

Pairing

Stewed leg of venison larded with juniper bacon, with well matured rip eye with pepper crust, with real Biltong – self-imported and hand-cut, truffled pigeon escalope, hare bratwurst with blackberry jelly, as part of a „blood, sweat and tears“ tasting – in the finale, as  patrimony if you have cancelled an unreasonable subscription or just to show off.

Making

Hand-picked  into small boxes, a lot of chalk under loam from the upper and lower part of Oberer Wald, practically no need for selection, beginning of October 2012 presenting impressive parameters of ripeness.

Destemming, mash fermentation in closed stainless steel tanks at a temperature of approximately  30°C for 14 days, followed by 4 more days of maceration, gentle pressing and maturation in 300 l barrels (approximately 50% new).
