The addition of some Rösler (a frost and mildew resistant modern crossing of Zweigelt x a hybrid-Blaufränkisch crossing) really fleshes out the fruit in this spicy, ripe raspberry and strawberry filled cuvée. There’s a balsamic hint on the nose, and a really inviting, velvety texture.
Overall, it’s juicy, thrillingly fresh and characterful. Just delicious, basically. The ripeness and heft are beautifully judged.
