Spanning approximately 60 hectares, the vines at Rovereto are an average of 25 years old. The harvest is done by hand and the wine is aged for around 5 months in steel tanks, and further refined once it hits the bottle. This is an intense yet delicate wine with fresh fruit flavours such as green apple on the palate, the finish is long with a definite elegance.
2015 Willi Opitz Private Cellar Victoria Opitz Goldamsel Beerenauslese Burgenland (Half Btl - 1/37.5cl)
Located in Burgenland, Austria, Willi Opitz Winery produces a range of high quality wines and has earned a variety of awards recognising their success. The Goldamsel Beerenauslese is a delicious dessert wine which oozes with tropical fruit flavours, the level of acidity is carefully and expertly balanced to ensure that it does not become over bearing. Pair this with a fruit based dessert such as an apple tarte tatin, or perhaps alongside a strong cheese and some crackers for a different experience.
This fruit forward wine from Gernot Heinrich is made from vines aged up to 30 years old. 2015 was full of sunshine and heat, (a welcome change from the rainy 2014). As a result the grapes were full and healthy, with slightly less acidity than perhaps expected. This is an easy drinking wine with cherry and red fruits on the palate and a hint of spice to finish.
