Holism and the pursuit of excellence go hand in hand. VIK A Cabernet Sauvignon 2020 showcases its fine terroir. It is a vibrant, tense and often linear wine with tannins that are rounded and restless. They make juicy progress through the mouth, delivering balanced acidity and evoking fresh aromas of red fruit and spices like black pepper. The palate is complex with many layers of flavours interwoven with its aromas. Serving temperature: 16º – 18ºC.
As the name suggest this is the wine that goes all the way. Done according to the AOP Cabardès appellation rules with a blend of Cabernet Franc, Syrah & Merlot which are all grown on white limestone soil at a small yield of just 35 hl/ha. After harvest, grapes are fully crushed and a pre-fermentation cold maceration for 5 days takes place at 6 degrees Celsius. Yeast is added and fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks at 28 degrees Celsius with daily pump-overs and punch downs for 25 days.
Malolactic fermentation follows. The wine is matured for 12 months in oak barrels; 50% in new oak (300 l and 600 l) and the other 50% in 1 year old barrels. After bottling the wine is matured for 12 months in bottle. A precise wine with strong notes of black fruits. On the palate, aromas of graphite, menthol and black fruits (typical of its terroir and its minerality), enhanced by melted oaked notes with supple and elegant tannins and a silky palate followed by a fresh long finish. A great wine from Languedoc which is both rich and distinctive.
It takes a lot of courage to plant Cabernet Franc and Merlot in the Markgräflerland, as the usual vineyards are limited to the Burgundian varieties and Chasselas. That’s why, 15 years ago, the idea of planting Mediterranean vines here was met with wide scepticism. For quite some time now the Cuvée Felix stood out as one of the flagships of this winery. Over the years this noble Bordeaux blend, garnered a solid growing appraisal. A mature wine with aromas of cassis, chocolate and vanilla which is very dense and opulent with a fine structure and elegant tannins. This is not your typical German red wine and pairs extremely well with strong meat dishes or game.
