Varietals: 60% Zweigelt, 40% Blaufränkisch
Austria's answer to Beaujolais. A red wine that's full of juicy dark-berried fruit and meant to be enjoyed by the light-hearted drinker. It's light bodied, low in tannin and laced with dark cherry fruit.
The Zweigelt is hand-harvested in mid-September while the Blaufrankisch is done in early October; all de-stemmed with two weeks of maceration. Each grape is fermented spontaneously separately in steel with natural yeasts for 10-14 days. The wine spends 12 months aging in steel and old oak and then is blended. Unfined and lightly filtered before bottling.
