quality wine

Age of the vines:
5 to 25 years
Zweigelt 55% - Blaufränkisch 30% - Cabernet Sauvignon 15%
Zweigelt from the Goldberg vineyard site and Blaufränkisch from the Altenberg vineyard site form the complex structure of this wine that reflects the multi-layeredness of the soils of the individual vineyards, ferrous red gravel and precipitated lime in Tertiary sediments. Cabernet comes from the Ungerberg and Altenberg vineyard sites situated on a southwest slope with limy soils of sand and loam and a special microclimate, providing for maximum concentration and ripeness.
Following yield reduction to 5 to 6 bunches per vine, the grapes were carefully selected and harvested by hand on 01 September, and 01 and 07 October.
Selection of the grapes, gentle processing, controlled mash fermentation, malolactic fermentation, bâtonnage, matured in barrique barrels for 24 months, bottled on 30 april 2019, bottle-aged for 9 months
Tasting notes:
dark ruby red colour with a pale rim; slightly vegetal with clear black cherry and blackberry fruit and a touch of blackcurrant; the clear fruit aromas continue on the palate, complemented by liquorice and clove spiciness; fruity, fleshy and structured, with precise, ripe tannins and very discreet toast aromas on the finish (04 February 2020)
