Purple with a violet rim. Animating nose, densely layered aromas of stewed sour cherries, sweet, very dark cherries and blueberries, lilac 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 spicy nuances, pleasant and juicy finish which asks for more and combines juiciness and power. Benefits clearly from the addition of our top-Zweigelt batches.
Very versatile food companion – particularly to kick off a party!! Gratinated potatoes with truffles and egg yolk … to match hearty soups made of smoked meat, 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 with Pepperonata or a hearty Brettljause (cold meat dishes) like to be seduced by the TRIE. Those who like tofu have to try out themselves.
