Deep ruby red, with a hint of blackcurrant, cinnamon and fine vanilla, soft on the palate with fresh nuances of red berries, and unmistakable coffee notes in the lingering aftertaste. Escorial is an impressive wine in every respect. A wonderful Cuvée with great potential.
collection: What makes our single-vineyard wines stand out is the particular choice of hand-picked grapes. The wine is made from grapes grown in individual vineyards with a long tradition, and the Klosterneuburg Monastery Wine Estate has been cultivating some of the individual sites for centuries. A highly selective and targeted harvest ensures the ripest of grapes, while the process of ageing the wines – done partly in small wooden casks – guarantees that they can be stored for several years while maintaining their high quality.
Wine growing region: Thermenregion
Maturation Potential: Wonderfully drinkable even when young, but also ideal for storage (5–8 years).
Food Pairing: Well-spiced dark meat, venison and wild boar.
