The grapes used from this wine originate from the Ihringer Winklerberg, which is recognised as the warmest vineyard site in Germany. Due to strict reduction of yields, the distinctive terroir character, and the unique micro climate, this wine meets the highest requirements in the way as they are common for "Grand Cru" appellations in France. After traditional mash fermentation process, this wine has been aged for 16 months on partly new barrique barrels to refine its character.
Tasting notes: Extraordinarily fine and tightly knit bouquet of dried red cherries, red currant, dog roses, and hints of mahogany, cinnamon and cardamom. Initially with a vibrant backbone on the palate. The brilliant and filigree acidity gives a pleasant vitality to the fine fruit body. Slightly smoky aroma of rose hips, dried berries, an sweet cherries. Noble tannin and elegant spine. Full of character and with the savoury touch and great complexity of a truly great wine in the finish.
Food recommendation: A perfect parent with sophisticated meat dishes, especially when herbs or roast aromas play a major role. Equally good with feathered game and various types of savoury cheeses.
