The grapes for this wine come from the best vineyards in Tattendorf. For this wine, only a few grapes remain per vine to achieve optimal ripeness. The grapes are processed very gently and the mash then ferments under optimal conditions in open mash tanks. The wine then goes into 2nd filling barrels and then matures there for 16 months.
Taste: a touch of wood among the ripe berry aromas, plus some vanilla and a hint of chocolate.

The Thermenregion is one of the oldest wine-growing regions in Austria and is located 30 km south of Vienna in Lower Austria. The region is influenced by the Pannonian climate. Typical of this are hot summers, dry weather in the fall and cooler winters.
Two different soil types form the basis for full-bodied red wines and finesse-rich white wines.
