Eagerly awaited! A cuvée of 60% Blaufränkisch, 20% Zweigelt and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon. This wine ages for 14 months in new oak before being moved to large barrels for another 6 months. Carefully selected grapes from reduced yield vineyards create a deep, dark, fruity, berry aroma. Mineral echoes of the prime growing location of Hochberg characterise the Blaufränkisch cuvée Desiderius. A multi-layered wine that will please for many years.
In loving memory of Tibor Desiderius

“Dark ruby to garnet, dark centred with a shimmer of violet and a delicate lightening towards the edge of the glass. Darkly, fruity blackberry and cassis with mineral undertones, a hint of sweet spice, a touch of nougat. Powerful, sweet, dark mixed berry confit, fine tannin and fresh structure. Lingers well and has good potential for development.”
