Our Blauburgunder, or Pinot noir, is a ruby to garnet red wine with pronounced tannin profile, an intense, ethereal bouquet which is reminiscent of wild berries, and a lingering, full finish.
Description: Colour: straw yellow, Nose: fresh, very clear, nice fruit, white fruits, Flavour: wonderfully clear also on the palate, very pure Pinot Bianco. Notes: The wine goes as aperitif, but is best suitable for light dishes, also starters
Color: intensive garnet red with ruby reflections. Smell: In the glass, Merlot aromas reminiscent of cassis and black cherry combine with the spicy-smoky character of the Cabernet, revealing a touch a green pepper and vanilla. The elegant blackberry notes of the Pinot Noir round of the composition to form a harmonious whole. Taste: On the palate, this cuvée offers an interesting symbiosis of the fruit of the Pinot Noir, the spiciness and tannins of the Cabernet, and the rich complexity of the Merlot.
Full bodied, smooth and rich on the palate.
