Gran Caus 2010 – Judith Beck, Gols Austria
Info: The estate is run by Judith Beck who inherited the business from her father after having trained at Cos d’Estournel in France and Errazuriz in Chile. The grapes benefit from the proximity of Lake Neusiedi which acts as a natural storage heater, storing the warmth of the sunshine during the day and releasing it through the night. ‘Ink’ is a blend of 90% Zweigelt and 10% Saint Laurent and is fermented in stainless steel before being aged in wooden casks for 12 months.
Tasting notes: Fresh and defined black fruits (cassís, morello cherries), spices (cinnamon, cloves), juicy with soft tannins, great elegance and very long finish.
Pairing: Pork or lamb dishes, or with great with mature, hard cheese.
