The weather conditions made 2019 a challenging year for our winegrowers. A relatively mild winter and early spring were followed by a wet and cool April and May. After the flowering of the vines, which was not until June, the weather changed and it became hot and dry. In late summer, some rain and below-average temperatures delayed the ripening of the grapes. Harvesting the healthy grapes began in early September and continued until the end of October.

– brilliant, deep ruby red
– fruit dominant nose reminiscent of cherry, raspberry, and strawberry, with a hint of bitter almonds
– full, soft structure, pleasant, elegant tyearsns give the wine length, finishes with a lingering echo of ripe fruit

This wine is ideal as an aperitif, an accompaniment to appetizers, or to typical Tyrolean fare such as speck and sausage, but also to lighter meats and mild cheeses.

Fermentation on the skins at a temperature of 25 °C, 10 days extended maceration, malo-lactic fermentation and a six-month aging on the fine lees in cement tanks and large casks.

Selected vineyards at St. Josef with old vines and south exposition at 230 – 500 meters above sea level. Heat absorbing, loamy, chalky gravel.
