Redmont 2017

 

With THIS WINE one is even allowed to use a common German-German adjective meaning ‘yummy’ that normally gets one laughed-at in Austria. The dark-fruit aromaticity and the wonderful core of sweet fruit make this wine simply irresistible.

  • élevage 16 months in French oak barriques

This wine pairs marvellously with game and dark meat dishes with powerful sauces. Its favourite date is lamb with rosemary.
