Aromatic ripe black cherry makes for a seductive nose. The palate subsumes this luxurious fruit with freshness, backbone and poise. This is concentrated but not heavy. It is the purity of the fruit that plays the well-deserved starring role here.

Available Vintages:

Varietal: Zweigelt
Zweigelt is a crossing of St. Laurent and Blaufränkisch. It is now the most widely-grown red grape variety in Austria.

Country: Austria
Austria's reputation for its wine has progressively matched that of its great stem ware (Riedel and Schott Zwiesel, to name a couple) and is now offering some of the best values at all price points. Split up into three main regions, the majority of production occurs in the flat fertile plains of Niederösterreich, or Lower Austria, in the north east corner of the country. The sub-regions of Kamptal, Kremstal, and Wachau offer some of the finest Rieslings and national specialty, Gruner Veltiner, Austria's number one grape which accounts for a third of vines across the country. Burgenland is Austria's second largest and sunniest region. Known for its reds and sweet botrytized whites, red grapes Zweiglet and Blaufränkisch is increasing popularity producing light wines similar to intensity to Pinot Noir. Although most white wine varieties are diminishing in prominence Sauvignon Blanc and Muscat are on the up. Lastly, Seiermark or Styria, the country's most southerly and smallest region accounting for about 7% of output. A lot of which is consumed locally at Huerigen, or bars, set up by the winemakers. Welschriesling is the most popular however Sauvignon Blanc is quickly catching up.

Region: Carnuntum
Carnuntum is a historic wine-producing area along the southern banks of the Danube River in far eastern Austria. Rolling hills and a warm Continental climate characterize the terroir and give rise to modern, elegant red wines made from Blaufrankisch and Zweigelt. Carnuntum's official winegrowing area stretches from Austria's border with Slovakia to the eastern outskirts of Vienna. The Danube river neatly delimits the region's northern border, and the Leithagebirge hills in the south separate Carnuntum from Burgenland in the south, Austria's other key red wine-producing region. Vineyards can mostly be found on the gently rolling hills of the Leithagebirge, the Arbetshaler Hugelland hills, and the Hainburger Berge.


Type: Red
Red wine is wine made from dark-coloured grape varieties. The color of red differs based on the grapes variety or varieties used. Interestingly, black grapes yield a juice that is greenish-white. The actual red color comes from anthocyan pigments (also called anthocyanins) from the skin of the grape (exceptions are the relatively uncommon teinturier varieties, which produce a red colored juice). Most of the production centers around the extraction of color and flavor from the grape skin.
