Expressive nose with black peppercorns, cloves, crushed rock, a hint of iron & blood, underneath all that - pure black fruit. Fresh, spicy, enticing.
Medium bodied on the palate with ripe, grippy tannins, juicy black fruit acidity and nice purity to the fruit. This has grip, good tension, quite some power and loads of character. Reminiscent of Northern Rhône.
Nice length, too! A brilliant Austrian red! — a year ago
Funky, grsssy, mineral-y and medium bodied. — 6 years ago
Nice sesame reduction on the nose with some roast apple and a hint of salty caramel.
On the palate this has nice tension, a salty mineral core covered in layers of apple, green apricot and caramel.
Good depth and purity and soo food friendly. — a year ago
