Intensive purple with a violet rim. Animating nose, densely layered aromas of cooked sour cherries, sweet, very dark cherries and black berries, completed by a touch of chocolate. Fruit-driven, additionally blue May-flowers. Dry, round spiciness, well integrated into a smooth body which hides its muscles behind fine tannins. Wide aroma spectrum of sun ripened fruits and spicy nuances, juicy and powerful finish which asks for more as it displays both, juiciness and power. Benefits from the addition of the winery’s best Zweigelt batches.
Very versatile food companion – particularly to kick off a party! Baked potatoes with truffles and egg yolk. To match good solid soups made of smoked pork, 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. Cheese bread and harissa or a powerful Brettljause (cold meat dishes) like to be seduced by the TRIE. Those who prefer tofu have to try out themselves.
