Intensive purple with a violet rim. Animating nose, densely layered aromas of cooked sour cherries, sweet, very dark cherries and strawberry juice, completed by a touch of chocolate. Fruit-driven, additionally blue May-flowers. Dry, round spiciness, well integrated into a soft body which hinds its muscles behind fine tannins. Wide aroma spectrum of sun ripened fruits and spices, full-bodied and juicy finish which asks for more.
Very versatile food companion – particularly to kick off a party! Together with home-made ham rolls, retro-snacks à la cheese picks, filled eggs etc… to match powerful soups made of cabbage, beans or even pot barley. Why not together with the usual pizza in case you are in a hurry. Or accompanying a late breakfast with smoked fish or an early brunch serving potato-goulash. Smoked pork and a powerful Brettljause (cold meat dishes) like to be seduced by the TRIE.
Hand-picked end of September 2007 into small boxes. Zweigelt from the single vineyard Satz Örtel and Baumgarten with St.Laurent from Baumgarten and separately harvested Cabernet Sauvignon from Kraxner.
De-stemming, closed mash fermentation in stainless steel tanks with spraying of the head for 9 days followed by three additional days of maceration. Gentle pressing, malolactic fermentation in the tank, maturation in large used oak casks.
