Walter Glatzer organically farms over 50 hectares in the ancient region of Carnuntum, the largest border community of the Roman Empire where Celtics, Romans, and later monastic settlements tended vines for over 2000 years. Carnuntum has a unique combination of exposition, soil, and microclimate that provides perfect conditions for viticulture. Vines in Carnuntum benefit from the contrast created by the warm Pannonian plain to the northeast, the cooling currents of the Danube, and wind protection from the Maria Ellend forest, to the north. This climate creates wide diurnal temperature swings, giving the wines a freshness and brightness that makes them a pleasure to drink.
Abundant oak amplifies the size of this wine, which is already on the rich side, thanks to its jammy fruit. If you like your reds big and forward, drink this now, with a steak; otherwise leave it in the cellar to see what it will become with time
