Canopus 2013

Current Wines | Wines from 2013


A bottle of Canopus

Canopus is our premium Cuvée that 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 being called Canopus share one thing. They are characterised by the strive for quality and definitely a great experience to taste.

Tasting notes

The Canopus shines bright red and with violet reflections in its glass. Intense fruity tones with red berries and hints of cherry can be found alongside Cassis and Barrique flavours. On the palat the wine is fruty, well structured and offers ripe tannins. The aftertaste reminds of dark choloate and is pleasingly mild.

Food suggestion

This wine ideally goes with food like steak or game. It also does exceptionally well when combined with strong cheese or even with dark chocolate and it never fails to be a culinary highlight.

Ageing potential

Needs three to five years after the harvest to reach its optimum but has te potential to be stored much longer than that.
