Overall, the weather was very good in the 2018 wine-growing year. Precipitation in winter and spring provided sufficient moisture and thus ideal fruiting conditions. Long hours of sunshine and above-average temperatures in summer and autumn led to very dry conditions compensated by some heavy thunderstorms in August. Thanks to the optimum weather conditions in late summer, it was possible to harvest a healthy and ripe grape crop.

– brilliant, cherry red hue
– flowery and fruity tones, violets and red berries
– very juicy and full, round soft finish with a dubdued undertone of bitter almonds

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.

A one week fermentation on the skins with a controlled temperature of 24 °C, malo-lactic fermentation and a four month aging on the fine lees in stainless steel and large casks.

Loamy, sandy, chalky gravel, warm lake influenced microclimates
