This is consistently my (Joëlle's) favourite wine in the whole Kurtatsch range.

It starts quite light in flavour, red fruit (redcurrant, grenadine) but then develops in power and complexity. Perfectly happy to be sipped on its own, but I dare you not to be intrigued as to what foods you might want to pair it with

DNA tasting tells us little about this grape other than the similarly named grapes which are not related!

It comes from Alto Adige in the north of Italy and is a lightly coloured wine that has gentle aromas and flavours of perfume and red fruits. Some hints of pomegranate, violet and almonds are in the mix. The tannins are light.

This is the perfect summer red which will please all those who often find red wine too heavy for al fresco dining.

This is just such a surprising wine it is hard to write tasting notes for it as your brain will expect one thing from its visual aspect - a translucent red gem, so light it's barely red wine - and its depth and intensity of flavour

The tannins are ghostly.

Some hints of pomegranate, violet and almonds are always in the mix.
