Drostdy Hof Cabernet Sauvignon 2006

This medium-bodied wine is ruby red in colour with aromas of berries and overripe prunes on the nose. It has a ripe warm fruitiness with soft tannins on the palate. The tannins are ripe and accessible, but will provide structure for extended ageing in the bottle. With further cellaring, this wine will gain in complexity and character over the next three years.

Enjoy this wine on its own or serve it as the perfect taste partner to a variety of pastas, game and veal.

about the harvest: The grapes were harvested by hand at 24-25° Balling from the end of February until the beginning of March.

in the cellar : The juice was fermented for five days on the skins to preserve as much fruit as possible and extract sufficient colour, but without the full-bodied tannins. A third of the wine was matured in third-fill barrels and the balance in French oak staves for nine months, to add spice and complexity.
