2018 Weingut Franz Weniger Vom Kalk Red Blend, Burgenland, Austria


Grapes - Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and the native Sankt Laurent grapes

Region - Burgenland, Austria

Winemaking - After a manual harvest the grapes are destemmed and fermented with ambient yeasts in cement tanks. The wine is then aged in a mixture of cement tanks and 500 litre wooden barrels and bottled without filtration or fining with just a minimum of sulphur. 

What it tastes Like - This is a fruit-forward wine which expresses the chalk/limestone soils of the vineyard. The nose is both fruity and floral, with plum, violets, cranberries and blackberries whilst the palate is stony, fine-grained and elegant.
