Tasting Note:

Translating as “Velvet & Silk”, the 2016 manages to be both vital and remarkably giving. From a blend of parcels entirely on the Spitzerberg hill. Finely etched forest fruit and summer berries, black raspberry and fresh herbs are balanced by energetic saline acidities and fine supporting tannins. Moreish and open already with bright aromatics and succulent red fruit, it is a Blaufrankisch that really delivers. Bottled December 2017 following 12 months ageing in traditional Austrian fuders.
