Bright pink in color. Both on the nose and on the palate, this rosé presents itself with finesse-rich strawberry and cherry aromas. Due to its fruity play of aromas and its pleasant acid structure, it is ideal as an aperitif or with light dishes.

Light limestone soils provide the perfect ripening conditions. It is one of the first red wines to be harvested each year.

St. Laurent is dark red in color with a slightly sweet scent of ripe berries such as currant and blackberry. The interplay of dark chocolate and fresh sour cherries on the palate lends St. Laurent its perfection.

Zweigelt Reserve

The Zweigelt grape variety, bred in 1922 by Prof. Fritz Zweigelt at the Klosterneuburg Wine School by crossing Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent, is today the most widely planted red wine variety in Austria.

The vineyard is located in the heart of the Thermenregion on a very area location on the Eichkogel, which is perfect for red wines and therefore the basis for this full, extract-rich and well-balanced wine. For this Zweigelt Reserve, previously selected grapes were picked by hand. The wine was stored in small wooden barrels for 14 months, it has a pleasant scent of ripe cherries, velvety tannins and a powerful finish with a beautiful length.

With increasing maturity, it gains more harmony and density, which is why the Zweigelt Reseve can be stored for a long time.

Merlot Barrique 

Merlot is originally from the area around Bordeaux, France. The name Merlot comes from the French word merle (German blackbird) and is intended to indicate the blackbirds preference for the red grape. The name can also be an allusion to the beautiful black and blue color of the berries.

The vines for this wine were planted in 2001 and grow on a sunny hillside near Guntramsdorf.

After being matured in a small wooden barrels, the Merlot presents itself as a fruity, full-bodied, red wine with a slight oak note, which has reached its perfect stage of maturity after several years of storage.
