Method & Production

The wines have been approx. 18 years old and are cultivated in a dense of around 4.000 vines/ha. To profit from the rising ground heat and to reach a high foliage-wall  a trellis training system at about 60-90 cm has been used and the guyot cutting system applied. In the cellar the grapes have been destemed and squeezed and must was fermented with automatic temperature-control at 28°C for 20 days in stainless steel tanks with pumping over. Storage took place in 80% stainless steel and 20% used barriques, after 3 months the wine was bottled in Burgundy-bottles with screw caps.

Tasting notes

The cherry fruit and supple texture of Zweigelt is united with the delicate strawberry and elegance of Pinot Noir. The sandy, chalk of the Bisamberg promotes finesse and complexity in this Viennese blend. Dark ruby red; berry fruit on the nose: blackberry, some raspberry and full cherry fruit. Soft tannins on the palate, compact body with some hints of strawberry, juicy and spicy finish.
