Barrel from Winery K+K Kirnbauer
for TheCookingSpoon DAS PHANTOM 2015
The family winery K+K Kirnbauer cultivates 40 acres of vineyards in the best locations of Deutschkreutz, right on the Hungarian border. The heavy, loamy soil offers the ideal habitat for their main varieties Blaufränkisch as well as Merlot and Cabernet, guaranteeing wines of highest quality. Together with the almost finicky selection of the grapes, full-bodied, mellow and durable wines – like “Das Phantom”
A kingdom for a grape.
Our wines represent long-lasting finest pleasure and Pannonian – the old Roman name for our province – joie-de-vivre.
You will get powerful, yet supple wines by just a few operating steps from the grape to the wine. Temperature-controlled fermentation and state-of-the-art technology are the key elements to obtaining dense and succulent wines. Fruity whites are aged in stainless steel tanks for several months; substantial reds are subjected to malolactic fermentation in large oak barrels and kept in those barrels for another year.
