The Club Batonnage from the pen of Club Battonage from Burgenland offers a dense purple color in the swirled glass. After the first swirl, this red wine reveals a high density and fullness, which shows in church windows at the edge of the glass. The bouquet of this red wine from Burgenland seduces with hints of blackberry and blackberry jelly. If we trace the aromatics further, cocoa and toasted wood come in, encouraged by the oak influence.
This Austrian wine delights with its elegantly dry flavor. It was bottled with exceptionally little residual sugar. This is a true quality wine, which clearly stands out from simpler qualities and so this Austrian naturally enchants with the finest balance despite all dryness. Taste does not necessarily require a lot of residual sugar. On the palate, the texture of this powerful red wine is wonderfully dense. The final of this very ripening red wine from the wine-growing region of Burgenland, more precisely from Lake Neusiedl, finally captivates with extraordinary reverberation.
Vinification of the Club Battonage Club Batonnage
This powerful red wine from Austria is vinified from the grape varieties Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Club Batonnage is an Old World wine through and through, as this Austrian exudes an extraordinary European charm that clearly underscores the success of Old World wines. The fact that the Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes thrive under the influence of a rather cool climate also has a very high influence on the maturity of the vintage. This manifests itself, among other things, in particularly long and uniform grapes and rather moderate alcohol content in the wine. When perfectly ripe, the grapes for Club Batonnage are harvested exclusively by hand without the help of punishing and less selective grape harvesters. After the hand harvest, the grapes arrive at the winery by the fastest route. Here they are selected and carefully broken up. Fermentation then takes place in large wood at controlled temperatures. After the end of fermentation, the powerful Club Batonnage is aged for several months in French oak barrels.
