This wine reveals intense red berry aromas accompanied by delicate scents of Zweigelt spice and a touch of moss and wet leaves. One the palate are juicy, spicy cherry fruit tones with playful yet gentle tannins. The Wiener Trilogie is not a thick, fat new world wine. It delivers mouthfuls of drinking pleasure with lots of finesse, and makes an ideal food companion.

The grapes for the Wiener Trilogie 2015 were grown exclusively in Vienna's Bisamberg vineyards. The soils are comprised of light, sandy loess over solid limestone. The plentiful hours of sun, the steady winds and the relatively low rainfall combined with the excellent drainage properties of the sandy soils all make the Wiener Bisamberg an outstanding red wine site.
Each of the wine varieties underwent their own fermentation and subsequent malolactic fermentation - in large wooden casks or steel tanks – the individual wines were racked into barriques. Depending on the structure of the wine, more or less around 20% of the wood used for the Trilogie is new. In our 16th century cellar, the wine matured in the barriques for around 20 months – these were repeatedly moved, and then, gradually, the final cuvée was put together.
