It is a very fruity Lagrein, dominated by berry-flavours, recalling raspberries and various wild berries. The exceedingly intense red of Lagrein "Merlau" comes almost close to purple. On the palate it convinces with its strong, round tannins and pleasant fullness. Its fruity and fresh character invites you to have another glass of it.
It is an absolute speciality to bottle a pure Cabernet Franc. This brother of the Cabernet Saugivnon is a very elegant and gentle red wine. It convinces with its pleasant fruit taste, like fruits of the forest and its strong, caressing character on the palette.
