The Merlot and Cabernet France red wine cuvée is a classic Bordeaux cuvée: Notes of berries and a lasting finish. Elegant and harmonious, it was christened for a famed rose of the same name.
Merlot and Cabernet Franc. DOC South Tyrol.
The naming of our red wine was inspired by a well-known rose. In 2004 we planted the vines for our red wine Baccara in the sunny south-east location of Wartegg in Marling. The grape varieties Merlot and Cabernet Franc are grown here on medium-heavy, slightly clayey and mineral-rich slate soil. The Wartegg vineyard site, with a slope inclination of approx. 35%, gets a lot of morning sun due to its south-east orientation, thus warming up especially in the first half of the day and then cooling down again towards evening. The cool nights preserve the fresh fruit and the pleasant acidity in the grapes.
Our red wine undergoes a maceration in the mash tank for about 20 days.Afterwards the young wine is used for the biological acid reduction and the maturation into the barrique for 12 months. After a further 6 months in steel tanks the wine is lightly filtered and bottled. After a total of two years our red wine with the Riserva status on sale.
