Bercher's Limberg XV Cuveé is ruby to purple red in colour. It has an intense aroma of cassis, cherry, and blackberry, as well as pepper and caramel. On the palate it is dense and powerful yet elegant.
Food Matching: This Cuveé pairs well with roasted meat, calf cheek, rack of beef with pepper sauce or lamb with an olive crust.
Vinification: Mash fermentation, followed by 15 months maturation in Barrique (French oak barrels).

"50% Cabernet, 20% Merlot, 20% Blaufränkisch with a touch of Spätburgunder to round it off.
Green pepper and cedar. Little bit of liquorice as well. Big plummy fruit with a chocolate and clove richness, but flushed through with bay-leaf freshness and vitality. Arne Bercher says gingerbread from the Lemberger/Blaufränkisch - the variety certainly brings a warmth and added dimension to what might otherwise have been a slightly boring bordeaux-wannabe. Really satisfying and just that little bit different without being too far out."
