Naked Red showcases the enormous strides made in Austrian red wine and exhibits the quality of its native red grape varieties. Zweigelt serves as the wine’s base, providing soft and juicy red berried fruit while notes of tobacco and spice come from Blaufränkisch. A small percentage of St. Laurent lends floral aromas and refreshing acidity.
