quality wine

Age of the vines:
Up to 48 years
The grapes for this wine come from Ungerberg, our best vineyard situated on a southwest slope facing towards Lake Neusiedl. The parent soil is formed by sea sediments that are around 7 million years old. The soil consists of silty loam, includes precipitated lime in numerous places and contains a high amount of limestone. These characteristics and the special microclimate in this vineyard are ideal for concentrated, complex red wines.
Following yield reduction to 10 half-bunches per vine, the grapes were carefully selected and harvested by hand on 22 September.
Selection of the grapes, gentle processing, controlled mash fermentation in an open vat, malolactic fermentation, bâtonnage, matured in barrique barrels for 24 months, bottled on 13 March 2020
Tasting notes:
Deep, dark ruby red colour with a light rim; mineral, multi-layered and complex fruit aromas of dark mountain cranberry, elderberry and cherry with discreet hints of Amarena cherry on the nose; very fruity and multi-layered, compact and structured on the palate, with an stringent tannin texture and very long-lasting finish (9 March 2021)
