ANTON 2008

To celebrate the birth of our son, Anton IBY VI, Anton V created a very special wine. This blend is made predominant of our region’s leading variety, Blaufränkisch. This wine is just as extraordinary as our son, Anton Franz Silvester who was born on the 29th of January, 2009.

“Never before, have I blended two vintages, but this wine is a perfect symbiosis of two difficult vintages. The main part of the blend comes from the challenging, but very good 2008 vintage. 10% comes from the equally turbulent, but sensational 2009 vintage” explains the proud father (Quintus).

"Extraordinary things don’t happen on the beaten path.”
 Johann Wolfgang v. Goethe

“The result exhibits good taste,” winks his wife, Eva – it was her idea to blend the two vintages!

Anton 08 is an elegant and harmonious blend of Blaufränkisch and Merlot.

Deep dark ruby garnet with a dark core. Ripe wild cherry, blackberry and blueberry with notes of pepper, heather and spicy minerals. Powerful and complex on the palate, combining intensity with elegance. Dark berries, black cherry, peppery spice and herbs with subtle oak perfectly integrated. Abundant fine-grained, ripe tannins and juicy acid are nicely integrated in a full body. Power and vibrancy join with racy finesse and elegance on an incredibly long finish.
