Canopus 2012Current Wines | Wines from 2012
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.
The Canopus 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.
This wine is ideal to accompany strong food like steak or game. It also does exeptionally well when combined with strong cheese or even with dark chocolate. It will always just be a culinary highlight.
Needs three to five years after the harvest to reach its optimum but has te potential to be stored much longer than that.
