A great Merlot with a cool aroma and good tannin structure!
This Cuveé of Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon originates from our warm and sunny south-facing Fürstenberg vineyard. A rocky, sandy location in Enzersfeld with a steep slope of up to 35 degrees.
The ripened grapes were harvested by hand in various stages. After a 14 day maceration period and gentle tank fermentation (with daily aeration and delestage) at 28-30°C, the wine aged for two years in fine 300 liter French oak casks.
Notes of black currant a little bit of sweetish wood in the nose. Juicy and tight, fine cassis-notes and tannin structur, elegant, long tasting, high potential, a wine for special moments.
