- The Wine
It's made from the very best grapes from the pick of Zull's Schrattenthal sites and is a blend of Zweigelt (70%), Merlot (20%) and Cabernet Sauvignon (10%).
This is a big wine for sure. A powerful nose of dark berry fruit, spice and tobacco. On the palate, complex, packed with lots of juicy dark berry fruit, very round and harmonious with robust tannins. Huge length. A good match for game and strongly flavoured meat dishes, deer, beef fillet, roasted shoulder of lamb or duck breast.
2009: Arrived Summer 2012. If anything, even bigger than the 2006 (see below).
2006: The grapes were hand picked at the end of October 2006 and underwent 30 days maceration followed by 14 months in oak.
ABV 13.5%. Acidity 5.5g/litre. Residual sugar 2g/litre.
