RED is an approachable, pleasure-giving wine produced from 50% Zweigelt, 40% Blaufränkisch, and 10% St. Laurent, aged for 12 months in used 500 L Austrian oak casks. RED comes from three areas: Leitha range, where the vines are planted on limestone; Parndorfer from gravelly soil; and Heideboden from sandy-loam soils.

Tasting Notes

This highly approachable RED is purely harmonious. The composition of its blend reflects the most important grape varieties in the vineyards: Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent.  Purple colour,  cherry nose and hints of floral and spice characters, this RED offers lots a black and red cherry notes on the palate, a refreshing acidity and well managed, round tannins.

Food Pairing

An every-day wine to be enjoyed with a good, simple meal, a picnic or cold cuts.
