As the name suggests (roter = red): a colour-rich, piquant, and “teaish” wine with an elegant body and texture.

Tasting notes and victuals on the way.

The loess in this region creates the natural conditions for this rich wine. The soil drifted here in multiple layers during the last ice age, about 100.000 to 10.000 years ago and covered the sub soil with marine deposits. Due to the valuable mineral composition, the loess soil creates a balanced depository of nutrients. Thanks to it’s small granules and capillary-like network, the loess soil is able to preserve a lot of water for drier periods. The wines that thrive in the loess region are distinguished by a particularly characterful, long lasting and delicate fruit. This wine was spontaneously and openly fermented on the mash with natural yeast. The oxidation process was promoted during fermentation. This resulted in the unique and special colour of the wine. After 2-3 weeks of contact with the mash, the wine was pressed and matured for 18 months in a small oaken cask. Afterwards the wine got bottled un􀁽ltered. Hand picked grapes got mashed in small stainless steel vessel (called “Immervolltank” or in English “Alwaysfulltank. Spontaneous fermentation. Punching down 3 times a day. Controlled fermentation held at 18-19°C. No malolactic was used. Then pressing followed by an 18 month maturation in small French casks without any sul􀁽tes added. Un􀁽ltered bottling and 20mg sul􀁽tes added one time.

The Wagram wine region

The loess in this region creates the natural conditions for the rich wine. The soil drifted here in multiple layers during the last ice age, about 100.000 to 10.000 years ago and covered the sub soil with marine deposits. The loess soil in the region reaches an extraordinary height of up to 20 meters. Due to the valuable mineral composition, the loess soil creates a balanced depository of nutrients. Thanks to it’s small granules and high capillary, the loess soil is able to preserve water, and is thus permanently able to provide the deep reaching roots of the grapevines in Pannonian, low-rainfall climate with enough water. The wines that thrive in the loess region are distinguished by a particularly characterful, long lasting and delicate fruit.
