Description

A'kira T.FX.T 2019

A'kira T.FX.T is the little brother of Arachon. Bright ruby red colour with a violet hue. The bouquet offers ripe blackberry, plum and cherry aromas. The full-bodied palate has a balanced acidity, structured tannins and a slate mineral backbone that underlie lots of fruit flavours, leading to a great finish. Animated and a pleasure to drink.

Ageing potential: Keep until 2033.

100% Blaufränkisch. The highest quality grapes from vineyards up to 65 years old. The grapes are grown in Mittelburgenland, a region famous for growing the Blaufränkisch variety. The vines grow in mica slate, clay and loess soils.

Hand harvesting of the grapes. Natural and spontaneous fermentation in wooden fermentation racks. The wine matures for 18 months in 500 L barrels and big oak casks.
