Excerpt from the rating:

Perwolff 2019:
Intensive, deep red colour, complex bouquet, blackberry, juniper, cornelian cherry, dark chocolate in the background, full bodied, dense, and tight structure, hint of tannins and a fruity finish, with blood orange and cranberry in the finish, very, very long finish, wow … almost perfect … a must. Blaufränkisch!

Perwolff 2018: 97 Points
Alter Weingarten 2018: 94 Points

Excerpt from the rating:

Perwolff 2018:
This has an entire fjord of elderberry aroma on the nose, but also notes of rose hips, wet earth and just a whiff of smoke from oak. Very concentrated, but also super straight and pure, the tannins building steadily as it flows over the palate, the subliminal acidity accelerating the mineral finish to warp speed. Must be the best vintage so far of this wine, which made its debut with the 1992 vintage. Drink or hold.

Alter Weingarten 2018:
Stunning intensity of ripe elderberry with gingerbread-spice notes and touches of wet earth and raw meat. Very good concentration and fine tannins that are already beautifully married to the acidity through the long, intensely mineral finish. Drink or hold.

We are happy to have received the certification: “Sustainably produced wine from Austria” from the Austrian Viticultural Association
Sustainable and good:

Questions on the topic of sustainability in wine-making have led to the development of a certification system, initiated by the Austrian Viticultural Association:

“Viticulture is a very intensive form of agriculture, given the amount of pesticides and fertilizer used, the energy and water needed and the frequent transportation necessary. Additionally, viticulture is sensitive to weather conditions, such as long periods of drought or rain, both of which have been aggravated by climate change. This leaves us with questions such as: ‘How can viticulture adapt to different climate conditions?’ and ‘What does sustainable viticulture that produces high-quality wine look like in ecological, commercial and social terms? What measures must be taken?’”
