Tasting Notes


The wine has a deep ruby color.


On the nose, the wine shows flavours of red cherries, raspberries and sour cherries with spicy tone that appears on the palate.


The palate reveals ripe red fruit, full body, elegant tannins, and a long soft aftertaste.

The Wine

The fermentation is carried out on the skins in order to extract the red color and tannins. To help this process, the juice is repeatedly pumped over the pomace hat. After two weeks, the young wine is separated from the skins, transferred to wooden barrels and the malolactic fermentation is started. The wine matures over two winters without filtration in old oak barrels to achieve stability and maturity.


Joseph Umathum applies organic and biodynamic principles in farming his 150 acres of vines, which are situated on the north and east sides of Lake Neusiedl. The winery is mostly known for its authentic red wines like Zweigelt, St.-Laurent and Blaufränkisch which are available as elegant classic wines as well as characterful single vineyard selections.
