90 Parker-Punkte für Excellent Reserve

90 Punkte sind David Schildknecht – dem Österreich-Verkoster für Robert Parker unser Excellent Reserve 2011 im Wine Advocate #212 vom Mai 2014 wert. Hier seine Worte zum Wein:

„The Pfaffl 2011 Excellent – a blend of over 60% Zweigelt with equal parts Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot – preserves Zweigelt’s tart-edged cherry fruit over a peat-like smoke-tinged darker berry base. Glycerin-rich and expansive, its fruit pit piquancy helps balance the caramel element introduced by toasted oak, while saliva-liberating salinity further offsets the hints of confection harbored by those bottling and delightfully extends its finish. I would plan to enjoy it by 2018.“

Auch zu uns als Weingut findet er diese nette Worte – Dankeschön!:
Indeed, the Pfaffls continue to polish their reputation as the Weinviertel’s most prestigious estate, and one that can boast a sheer diversity of offerings as well as an ambition with red wine that know no equal in this vast region.
