Waldgries Ansitz Antheos St Magdalener Classico DOC 2021


A blend of historical Schiava clones resurrected by Christian Plattner’s tiny Waldgries estate. Schiava Gentile, Schiava Grigia and a touch of Lagrein that underwent three weeks of maceration with 20% whole bunch included before resting in large-format old wooden casks for 12 months. A beautiful perfume of wild berries, dark cherry, davidson plum and yellow peach. Rosehip tea and peppery spice lift the tone. Seamlessly framed by silty tannins, bright flavours and sour cherry acidity. Densely flavoured, vivacious with an ethereal elegance to it with amaro-laced cherry pith and salted fennel on the pleasingly savoury finish.
