Gut Oggau ‘Josephine’ (Red) 2015
Family Tree description – “Timotheus’s second wife and Winifred’s stepmother. An easy-going and somewhat voluptuous lady, she first found the love of her life at a slightly older age. Shaped by her tempestuous youth, she is an unconventional type that radiates vitality and enjoys life to the fullest. She feels most at home in company, is open to strangers, and rewards friends with deep insights into her innermost qualities”.
Deeper hued and darker fruited, with brooding mulberry, sweet cassis, spicing, and cracked cloves. Though the palate is mouthfilling, it has a lift and impression of brightness. There is some forest floor and earthy funk lingering beneath the berry fruit. Tannins are fine, firm and secondary. Contemplative and serious, while easy to drink.
