A multifaceted fragrance of amarelle cherry and lingonberry is accompanied by delicate vanilla and subtle oak spice.


The highly elegant palate impresses with precisely chiselled acid structure, velvety tannins, and a compelling, long finish.

Growing Conditions

A mixture of clay, lime, eroded porphyry and fine gravel.


Grapes are manually selected, then de-stemmed and selected once again by hand on a sorting table. After a brief, cool maceration to enhance fruit aroma, the must ferments for 10 days at a constant temperature.
Maturation occurs in three phases. In the first phase, the wine matures for around 18 months in small oak barrels. After assemblage, it remains for another 6 months in large oak casks. Once the wine is bottled, it is allowed to rest for another 12 months in the Barthenau Estate cellar.


Dark ruby colour.

Food Pairing

Red meats, venison and game, and mild cheeses.
