From the single vineyard closer to the Black Forest, a cooler mesoclimate delivering a lighter and more elegant wine. Smells fabulous with aromas of cherry and red berry fruit, blackberry, spice, smoke, earth and a touch of well framed oak. Very fresh on the palate with nice minerality and vibrant acidity. Enough tannic structure to age for another decade at least. Excellent balance of body & flavour intensity. This wine possesses intriguing complexity and a long finish. Charming and floral but also racy and focused.
