Blaufränkisch and Roesler
Timotheus’s second wife and Winifred’s stepmother. An easy-going and somewhat voluptuous lady, she first found the love of her life at a slightly older age. Shaped by her tempestuous youth, she is an unconventional type that radiates vitality and enjoys life to the fullest. She feels most at home in company, is open to strangers, and rewards friends with deep insights into her innermost qualities.
Slightly funky, nose, maybe a touch of Brett, but blew off after a while. Red cherry and almond knitted with fine fresh acidity. Smells like a Porto, super concentrated cherries and ripe fruit. Acidity goes well with the full body and the finish is long and pleasant. Unique one. Deep intense colour, with a leather, mushroom and wet forest to the nose and a medium bodied wine with complex palate. Highly recommended with food!
Grapes are hand harvested and destemmed. Fermentation takes place in used 500, 1000 and 1500-liter barrels. The wine goes through elevage in 500-liter barrels for about 8 months, with no batonnage. The wine is bottled unfined, unfiltered, and with zero addition of sulfur.
