A beautiful red sweet dessert wine. Ordered off the list at Das Loft in Vienna, Austria. 8%abv. Ruby/iced tea in color, clear and bright. The nose has red raspberries, strawberries and slight hay notes. Viscous. On the palate, red raspberries, plums and herbal notes. Complex and deep. Long, long finish. This is delicious on its own and would work well with a not too sweet chocolate dessert. Drink over the next ten to fifteen years.
The grape here is called Rotburger not to be confused with the German white Rotberger. It is the same as Zweigelt, however, its creator Dr.
This is a biodynamic blend of 50% Gelber Traminer, 50% Roter Traminer from Austria. Golden in color, clear and bright. The nose has grapefruit, slight lime and a bit of honey. Medium bodied. On the palate, this is crisp but has a slight sweetness that works well together. Some citrus, too. Nice finish. There is a lot of concentration and depth to this. Drinking well at age 7, it probably should be drunk in the next three to five years. It would work well with spicy Thai or Chinese food.
This is a blend of 91% Chardonnay, 6% Pinot Blanc, 2% Muskat-Ottonel 1% Pinot Gris. The wineries notes recommend shaking prior to serving which was not done. No worry, an excellent showing and a very nice value. Light golden in color, clear and bright. The nose is tight at first but then shows sulfur/gunpowder and grapefruits. Medium bodied. On the palate, this is smoky with minerals and some grapefruit. Good finish. It is easy drinking and tasty right now. Drink over the next few years. It drinks nicely on its own and will work with lighter foods or soft cheeses.
