Canopus 2006

A bottle of Canopus

Canopus is our premium Cuvée which we create from our very best red wines only in outstanting vintages. Every time we decide anew which varieties to blend for this special wine after they have been aged individually in new small oakwood barrels for at least one year. In doing so we use the opportunity to aim for the best quality possible and every vintage will develop a distinctive character. All wines that we find worthy of beeing called Canopus share one thing. They are characterised by the strive for quality and definitely a great experience to taste. In 2006 we chose Cabernet Sauvignon and Blaufränkisch. Together they profit from the complex and noble tannins of the Cabernet as well as the fruitiness of the Blaufränkisch which is so typical for the Burgenland.

Tasting notes

The Canopus 2006 nestles dark garnet-red in the glass. Its bouquet magnificently combines cassis flavours with the full fruitiness of Blaufränkisch grapes. Strong and complex on the palate the wine also presents nuances of a roasty finish.

Ageing potential

Needs 3 to 7 years after the harvest to reach its optimum. After that it will at least be good to drink for an equally long time.
