Austria's most widely planted red variety is a cross of two traditional Austrian varieties, St. Laurent and Blaufrankisch. The grapes for this wine go through a one to two week fermentation and maceration process, then they are carefully pressed. The wine matures on the lees for six months and is bottled after minimal filtration.
This wine is dense and juicy with a purple color and hints of strawberries and fresh herbs on the nose. It exhibits ripe fruit on the palate, reminiscent of plum with pleasant acidity and pepper. It is an elegant wine with a spicy balanced finish.
