TASTING NOTE JANUARY 2012
Delicate aromas of plums, dark cherries and dark berries. On the palate full but not really opended yet. We are very excited how this wine will taste a few months later.
Maximillian is a blend of Merlot, Pinot Noir and new-cultivated German vines called Cabernet Dorsa, Cabnernet Dorio and Cabernet Cubin. Like at all our red wines we reduce the crop and practice a very strict quality management in the vineyards. Because of the low crop in 2009 and 2010 we only had to reduce the Merlot grapes. All our fruits are handpicked and sorted before gentle manufactured in the winery. The maceriation of the skins took 3-4 weeks. The wine aged between 12 and 18 months in used oak.
