Canopus 2015

Current Wines | Wines from 2015


A bottle of Canopus

Canopus is our premium Cuvée that we create from our best red wines only in good 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 in its glass. In the nose there are fruity notes of berries and cassis, emphasised by gentle smoky flavours. On the palate it is distinctly fruity, well structured and offers a sublte tartness with hints of spices.

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 two to four years after the harvest to reach its optimum but has te potential to be stored for at least five more years.
