“Ruby-garnet with a dark core, dark and juicy berries, dried fruits, orange zest, nougat, smooth and full-bodied on the palate, concentrated and very long lasting.” Coming from the single vineyard Bärnreiser in Höflein with nutritious gravely loess soils. Bärnreiser is one of the warmest places, similar to a separate valley which stores the warm sunshine of the hot summer days and stays very warm during the nights as well. The deep soils keep the warmth for the grapes and therefore bring constant ripening, which is very important for the Merlot in this “cool climate”. As a result the vines yield a very high quality every year and a Merlot with dark fruit, a long and deep structure, and a very full-bodied palate. Enjoy with dark meat, goose liver, cheese, or the always worthy decision of being enjoyed on its’ own. Ideal drinking temperature 18 °Celsius.
