A great blend of a multitude of valuable varieties, aged in oak barriques.
Varieties: Syrah, Petit Verdot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Lagrein : a carnival ("Kermesse") of the best varieties!
Colour: Dark purple-red
Nose: intensive aroma of wild berries with a discreet spicy note of pepper in the background, typical for Syrah.
Flavour: Powerful in the mouth, very elegant and balanced with delicate toast aromas on the palate; very spicy, with well incorporated tannins. Long finish with great potential. A very elegant wine with finesse.
Winemaking and maturation: The individual varieties are harvested at the same time and vinified as a blend. Only the later ripening Cabernet Sauvignon is fermented separately. The must is fermented in steel tanks for about ten days, followed by 18 months' maturation, one half in new and one half in used French oak barrels. Then after two months in steel tanks, the wine is matured in the bottle for six months before being put on the market.
Serving temperature and food pairing: 16-18°C, with dark meats and game
The Trenker Bakery's Schüttelbrot is rightfully called "handmade bread", as required by the "Südtirol" quality trademark. In fact, when he rolls out the dough for this traditional natural spice and rye bread, the baker places the dough on a round board: he shakes it until he obtains a thin disk, which is baked in the oven until it takes on the shape of a low, crisp focaccia.
In order to permit even more distants clients to taste fresh Trenker bread, modern techniques of conservation are utilised. The bread prepared with all the original ingredients is pre-baked at the bakery and packaged with care in a modified atmosphere. In this manner, the bread maintains its natural freshness and is ready for export to nearby countries.
