Canopus 2010

A bottle of Canopus

Canopus is our premium Cuvée which we create from our very best red wines only in outstanding 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 about one year. In doing so we always aim for the best quality possible and every vintage will develop its 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 2010 we selected Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot 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 and both are supported by the full bodied Merlot.

Wine made from organic grapes. AT-BIO-402

Tasting notes

The Canopus 2010 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.

Food suggestion

This wine is ideal to accompany strong, well spiced dark meat and fits perfeclty as the highlight of exceptional culinary events.

Ageing potential

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