Wine maker notes: THE VINES have been approx. 19 years and are cultivated in a dense of around 4.500 vines/ha. To profit from the rising ground-heat and to reach a high foliage-wall we use a trellis training system at about 60-90 cm and apply the guyot cutting system. THE HARVEST took place by the beginning of October at 19,5°KMW, picked by hand with a small, well-trained team, which selected the grapes directly in the vineyard. IN THE CELLAR the grapes have been destemed and squeezed and must was fermented with automatic temperature-control at 28°C for 26 days in stainless steel tanks with pumping over. The wine has been stored in used Barriques. After 6 months of storage the wine was bottled in Burgundy-bottles.
Grape Variety/Blend: Zweigelt
Tasting notes: Brillant, ruby; full cherry fruit in the nose, a hint of smoke; round and juicy on the palate. Crisp tannins give spicy nuances. A Zweigelt with full body and round fruit.
