quality wine

Age of the vines:
7 to 27 years
Zweigelt 50% - Blaufränkisch 35% - 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 12, 23 and 30 September.
Selection of the grapes, gentle processing, controlled mash fermentation, malolactic fermentation, bâtonnage, matured in barrique barrels for 24 months, bottled on 16 March 2022
Tasting notes:
dark ruby red colour with a pale rim; dark chocolate on the nose with clear black cherry and blackberry fruit and a touch of blackcurrant; the clear fruit aromas continue on the palate, complemented by liquorice; fruity, fleshy structured, with ripe stringent tannins and very discreet toast aromas on the finish (15 June 2022)
