From the importer:
Pretty color; gushy primary fruit aromas; a taut fruity red, the kind no one makes any more, like a cuvée of Gamay and Tempranillo. Hot weather, burgers and ribs, can’t find a glass? Drink it from the damn bottle!
Wines of exceptional clarity, incisive detail, high-definition obsessive nuance, fresh vitality, and most of all charm and deliciousness. It’s not the same sort of charm we see in Setzer, whose wines are more cashmere-textured, but it is something of great good humor that elevates the wines from mere correctness. You may think this estate is “obscure” but inside Austria it is gulped away with hyperactive haste, and we feel very lucky to have scored it.
