The first red pick of the season. Because of the lighter crop of these vines and the hot season we decided, as we tend to do, to pick a bit earlier with this variety. This Lagrein shows signs of its traditional brooding nature with quite a bit of animalistic qualities: leather, iodine, even meat, yet surrounded in mouth watering freshness making this a much more food friendly version.
