This wine is a blend of 65% Zweigelt and 35% Blaufränkisch.
The vines used to harvest the grapes for this wine are 10 to35 years-old. The vines are situated in vineyard sites on the southern slopes of the Parndorfer Platte; including Salzberg, Gabarinze, Unterberg, Altenberg, Kurzberg, Kaiserberg and Alter Aussatz.
All the grapes were harvested by hand from mid-September to the beginning of October 2009. Following careful selection in the vineyards and again on the winery sorting belt, processing took place according to the gravity principle without pumps. Spontaneous fermentation was in steel tanks and wooden fermentation vats between 28 to 32°C. After stirring via the Pulsair system as well as by hand, there was 3 to 4 weeks of maceration followed by malolactic fermentation. The wine was matured for twenty months in 226 litre and 500 litre oak barrels.The wine was bottled and sealed with glass closures at the end of August 2011.
This wine was imported by Gullberg by Stockwine AB.
