Luscious purple, dark violet with a dense core and marked violet rim. Expressive nose of cherries and lilac. Very precise Zweigelt fruit with aromas of licorice and white pepper. Dry, intensive fruit expression, dark-spicy and charmingly juicy, wonderful cherry fruit. Animating, lively crisp, proudly mirrors the „Blaufränkisch-soil“ of its vineyard.


Amatriciana with fried dices of salami, ham specialties face gnocchi with home-made walnut pesto, Austrian beef cuisine, seared chanterelles, gratinated tomatoes with herbs, pasta all´arrabbiata, tomato risotto with mozzarella, bar snacks such as fried dumplings of dried fish, salted pistachios, fresh farm bread with plum-olive-schmalz, crispy duck. To show those not at home with wines from Burgenland what we mean by fruitiness.
