Product Description:

For red wines, Markowitsch is in a class of his own amongst Austrian producers. His vineyards, in Carnuntum are ideally situated on a slope approximately equidistant from the Danube River on one side and the Neusiedlersee on the other. The soils are sandy loam and limestone (perfect for reds) and he does not irrigate. He is equally famous for his rare cuvées of Pinot Noir, Rosenberg blend, and his ultimate “M” cuvée, as he is for his value cuvées, Rubin Carnuntum and Carnuntum Cuvée. We find his Pinot Noir to be stunning.

This wine shows intense and deep fruit character, good balance and soft tannins. After fermentation in stainless steel tanks and 14 days of maceration time, the wine rests for malolactic fermentation and is aged 12 months in used french oak barrels
