Popular Austrian red grape Zweigelt based blend in masterly hands - Dark, with herbs and spices on the nose, and fruit driven on the palate. Lovely stuff.
The driven winemaker Johannes Trapl grows traditional Austrian varieties organically in the region of Carnuntum. His organic journey began over 10 years ago with the initial goal being to have all of his vineyards certified, his attention has now turned to biodynamic practices. Devoted to plant diversity and vineyard care, his grapes are carefully watched as they reach a steady, healthy ripeness. This natural, low tech approach is continued in the winery where grapes for his premium wines are foot-trodden and then naturally fermented before being aged in amphoras to help bring to life the efforts and attention shown in the vineyard.
Tasting Note: Intense red colour with violet reflections. Herbs and Spices underlaid by dark cherries, berries and mineral touch. Juicy elegant styled, endless finish.
