Tasting Note: Blaufrankish, a red grape varietal native to Austria, expresses itself beautifully in this bottle which is also very reminiscent of Dornfelder.

Medium-intensity ruby in color this wine has an aromatic nose of black plum, black cherry, raspberry and hints of orange citrus.

On the palate the dry, medium-bodied wine shows bright, ripe, fruity black fruit flavors coupled with medium-plus acidity.

The wine is straightforward yet shows some flavor concentration.

A perfect red to chill before serving in summer to accentuate acidity and fruitiness.

Bottle Note: The Free City of Rust belongs to one of the worlds’ most traditionally rich wine regions. Winemaker Paul Schandl joins together the heritage of his more than 270-year-old family wine estate with the strength of native terroir to produce uniquely expressive vintage wines.
