A luscious sweet wine made from very ripe berry clusters that are about 50 percent a?ected by botrytis. The resulting wine is dense, intensely ?avored and rich on the palate, but balanced by Riesling's naturally crisp acidity. The red volcanic soil of the Ürziger Würzgarten vineyard produces wines of a completely unique nature. The wines showcase the typically juicy and precocious fruit of the "spice garden", with a rich mouth feel, zippy acidity and lingering fnish.
Lovely pale gold and gentle, fine bubbles. Toasty, spicy and complex aromas showing wonderful development after more than three years on lees in our cellar. The palate supports these complex aromas with honey, almond, passtry and baked apple flavours. Very fine and elegant with great comination of intensity, delicacy and length.
Blend. Special (Secret) Blend (the blend is printed on the cork, so is only revealed when the wine is opened)
Location. Curico´, Maule & Colchagua Valley
Tasting Note. Complex blackcurrant, blackberry, plum, bitter chocolate, vanilla, liquorice and spice. Fresh and approachable but with big ripe tannins
Vinification. Each year the best 7 barrels are selected from a total of 3200 barrels and a blend is constructed from these components. It is limited to a production of 2300 bottles and reflects the qualities of the particular vintage
Food Match. Grilled or roast beef, beef stew (particularly ox cheek), strong hard cheeses like mature cheddar
Vibant antique red rose colour, hint of copper tones, lovely tiny bubbles. Red mango, honey, hints of star anise/cardamom and alyssum. Red liquorice, red cherry and current flavours. High intensity with lovely round and full but soft texture. Finish is very long and full with redcurrant and hints of shortcrust pastry.
