Opaque, intensive purple with a violet rim, impressive viscosity. Multi-faceted fragrance displaying black Cormons cherries plus a leaf of mint, almost ethereal dark fruitiness, varieties of pepper, candied blackberries, untamed yet revealing a tranquil body, cornelian cherries and kao kao, dry with very generous prospects, like real giants: extremely powerful yet very charming. Positively present 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.
Stewed leg of venison larded with juniper bacon. Unfortunately mammoth hunters did not know Oberer Wald to get their steaks. With well matured rip eye crusted with pepper, 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, to hand down to your children if you have cancelled an unreasonable subscription or just to show off.
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 2013, literal parameters of ripeness.
Destemming, mash fermentation in closed stainless steel tanks at a temperature of approximately 30 °C (88 °F) for 14 days, followed by 4 more days of maceration, gentle pressing and maturation in 300 l barrels (approximately 50% new).
