Classification: ÖTW Zweigelt tasting
ABV: 13.5

Smooth and elegant texture with refreshing acidity. The nose shows lots of ripeness and some kirsch and cherry-stone notes. Rich cherry compote on the palate, quite restrained and well defined – not your usual simplistic strawberry fruit bomb. Tannins are fairly soft. Quite prominent oak but it is well integrated. Lots of potential fur further ageing.
