Viennese friends introduced me a decade ago to the great Estoras vineyards owned by the Princes Esterházy as making some of the greatest wines of central Europe and the former Austro-Hungarian empire.

How does the wine taste?
Esterházy Pinot Noir is a superb red with fine aromas of strawberries and sour cherries. The spicy notes and velvety tannins provide a long, lingering finish.

Reviews of the previous vintage
"Medium ruby colour, violet reflections, delicate brightening around edge. Fine red berry confit with hints of tobacco, a touch of orange zest, delicate cherry notes. Juicy, elegant, silky tannins, fine spicy, raspberry touch on the finish, sticks well, great food companion."
