A blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Elegance, fruitiness and silkiness are its strengths, including a wonderfully long, juicy finish.
It’s a natural beauty through and through.
Harvest of the Merlot-grapes on october 9th and of the bought organic Cabernet-Sauvignon-grapes on october 17th. Maceration period of one month in open wooden casks, seperately. Spontaneous fermentation.
We did the punch downs by hand in beginning and later we pumped over (remontage).
The malolactic fermentation also occurred spontaneously in open casks.
Both wines matured separately for 16 months in used Hungarian and French barriques.
After blending, the cuvée was bottled unfiltered and unfined with a low dose of sulphur.
