Purple with a violet rim. Animating nose, densely layered aromas of cooked sour cherries, very dark cherries and black berries, lilac, completed by a touch of chocolate. Fruit-driven, also 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 nuances of spices, pleasant and juicy finish. This pleasant combination of juiciness and power asks for more. That´s Zweigelt from Rust at its best - powerful yet crisp!
Quark noodles with smoked sweet peppers and “jack-bacon”. Multi-talented – and above all to kick off a party! Backed potatoes with truffles and egg yolk ... to match powerful soups made of smoked pork, beans or even pot barley. With the usual pizza - in case you are in hurry, or accompanying a late breakfast with smoked fish or an early brunch serving potato-goulash. Cheese bread with peperonata or a rich Brettljause (cold meat dishes) fall also for the TRIE. If you like tofu, just try it. The 2014 vintage again shows a nice potential for “seriously” enjoying more than one or the other glass - or functions as “reset” after a glass or more of Oberer Wald or before turning to Plachen.
Hand-picked mid to end of September 2014 into small boxes. Zweigelt from the single vineyards Satz Örtel, Gertberg, Bandkräftn 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 10 days followed by three additional days of maceration. Gentle pressing, malolactic fermentation in the tank, maturation in large, used oak casks (500-2.500 l).
