Cellar for up to 8 years. No need to decant before serving. The story of Dorli Muhr begins in 1912 when the 18 year old Katharina Muhr was given a modest 0.17 hectare plot of vines by her aunt. Over the years Katharina tended to the vines and enjoyed the wine they gave until the vines eventually died off and the land was left fallow. In 1995 Katharina’s granddaughter Dorli Muhr had her own dream of making wine and began to replant the fallow land. The project soon blossomed and grew into a boutique winery where Dorli now works alongside her daughter, Anna. Carnuntum is crafted from 65% Blaufränkisch and 35% Syrah and undergoes very light-handed treatment in the winery to showcase the character of the varieties and terroir. The grapes are fermented using wild yeasts and without the addition of sulphur with maceration taking place slowly in large wooden casks. The young wine is then left to mature for two years to produce a very well-rounded and balanced red with a lively personality. On the nose there are enticing hints of red cherries, plums and violets while the first sip reveals a mouthwatering acidity and medium body. The rich red fruit flavours on the palate linger long on the tongue and the moderate tannins and finely-built structure make this a great choice for extended cellaring over the next few years.
