Spicy notes predominate over ripe red fruits, a note of freshly ground coffee creeps in, ripe red apples. Variegated! Dry mouth, medium body, higher acids, tannin grip is very boldly set and can also flirt with some red wines. It is also spicy in the mouth, and above all, the wine has an abundance of structure. Medium-bodied, with a surprisingly moderate alcohol level depending on the variety, the origin and also the (strong) style of the house, which, however, really calms down. At the moment, the tannins are a little rough, but the wine can travel nicely into the future.

The finish announces a full bodied, Chardonnay-like structure.
Tasting Notes: Intense orange hue with cloudy appearance, which is due to the absence of filtering. On the palate, a delicious set of herbal notes, ripe fruits and aged notes prevails. In the mouth, this blend feels complex, yet elegant, but also so different. This play of 5 varieties is combined so as to embody the full-bodied character of Chardonnay, elegance of Riesling and Pinot Gris, as well as a hint of spiciness and complexity deriving from Traminer and Muškat Ottonel. Wine to remember. The aftertaste accents its full bodied structure, while the very end is loaded with impression of herbs.
Tasting Notes: In the glass, it wows us with a deep, bright amber color, which is mainly due to the Pinot Noir extract. The consistency is dense. The nose is intense, reminiscent of dried fruit, where apple slices, dried apricots, quince, pineapple slices and papaya stand out. Candied citrus starts to open up with time; orange peel, lemon and then red grapefruit. Thyme introduces dried Mediterranean herbs, with wild mint and sage. Hay blends nicely with aromas of dried yellow flowers and black tea. Pine resin and graphite in between. Overall, well emphasized with caramel wood aromas, star anise, vanilla and licorice.
Tasting Notes: An impeccable onion skin color given by the perfect maceration, presents us a compact wine, delicately dense with extract. To the nose immediately the enameled notes, rich in morello cherry under spirit, are only the first encounter with an extremely variable and complex olfactory profile, able to keep us concentrated in the glass. Crisp notes of smoked bacon, onion under ashes, spices, turmeric and fresh cold cuts appear. beautiful the balanced tannic component on which to play with a gastronomic combination, but perfect to enjoy even just for the extreme cleanliness that leaves in the mouth. A surprising and exciting wine.
