Wine: The grapes used for 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 it is common from "Grand Cru" appellations in France. After traditional mash fermentation process, this wine has been aged for 18 months in barrique barrels (70% new wood) to refine its character.
Tasting notes: Charming and appealing bouquet of juicy dark plums and sloes, warm wood, chocolate, and black pepper. Supple and velvety first impression on the palate. A filigree spiciness is integrated in the fruit body with smooth depth and finely juicy texture. Ripe and multi-layered aroma of berry compote and roast plums. A velvety tannin enfolds the fruit body. Rich finish with bucolic fruity charm and subtle but nevertheless present fine and aromatic, savoury warmth.
Food recommendation: A perfect partner with sophisticated meat dishes, especially when herbs or roast aromas play a major role. Equally good with game and various types of savoury cheeses.
