RED showcases the enormous strides made in Austrian red wine and exhibits the quality of its native red grape varieties. Zweigelt serves as the wine's base, providing soft and juicy red-berried fruit while notes of tobacco and spice come from Blaufränkisch. A small percentage of St. Laurent lends floral aromas and refreshing acidity. Zweigelt is Austria's most-planted red grape variety and is favored for its soft and fruity character, making it easy to enjoy and versatile at the table. Its fresh and bright profile allows Zweigelt to cut the richness of traditional Hungarian goulash or complement the flavor of roasted game birds or earthy chanterelle mushrooms.
A hint of cinnamon touches upon ripe, red-cherry notes, creating an appetizing nose. The palate has juicy lightness and ease, edged with white pepper. Light and juicy, it's an excellent, animating party wine.
