Luscious purple, dark violet with a dense core and marked violet rim. Expressive nose of cherries and lilac. Very precise Zweigelt fruit with aromas of licorice and white pepper. Dry, intensive fruit expression, dark-spicy and charmingly juicy, wonderful cherry fruit. Animating, lively crisp, does not – and has no intention to – deny the „Blaufränkisch-soil“ of its vineyard.
