A beautifully elegant wine, blending three Austrian varieties with Merlot. Gernot Heinrich regards this as his flagship wine, and he has managed to make an impressive wine that keeps its richness and opulence well under control. The overall impression is of fresh cherries, plum skins, some toast flavors and a background of herbs and spice. A wine that should age 3–4 years.
