A joint venture between F.X. Pichler in the Wachau, Manfred Tement in Styria and Illa Szemes in Burgenland. The wine, a blend of Blaufränkisch, Merlot, Zweigelt and Cabernet Sauvignon, is produced in the Burgenland. The result is a hugely spicy wine, full of red berry fruits and firm but sweet tannins.
