Capella 2006Current Wines | Wines from 2006
Capella is or Premium-Zweigelt It is selected from the best grapes of the vintage 2006. Rigorous barrel ageing and ripe Flavours togehter form to a jutting red wine with great potential just right for wine enthusiasts and connoisseurs. This wine represents the most distinguished Zweigelt type and fully accentuates its strengths. The name Capella is derived from a bright star in the nights sky, inspired by the stardom of the Zweigelt variety and also by our Premium-Cuveé Canopus. Together, Capella and Canopus form a exclusive team, fixed stars in red wine heaven.
The Capella 2006 glistens wit a ruby-red core and violet reflections when poured into the glass. Its bouquet is extensively complex. Starting with the distinguished cherrylike fruitiness of a Zweigelt the Capella then developes strong and ripe flavours reminescent of dark berries and fruits in Rum, supported by delicate smoky tones. The taste is nobly tart and shows ripe tannins and an opulent structure.
Beeing a very strong Zweigelt this wine goes especially well with red meat and game.
Needs 2 to 5 years to reach its optimum. After that it will at least be good to drink for an equally long time.
