Dark Cherry Red. Some hints of dark red fruits. Ripe and dense but fine on the pallet. A slight touch of vanilla with an exceptional long finish.

Wine maker notes
Selection of the best quality grapes. The fruit is crushed,followed by a cold maceration for 6 days. Once Fermentation is finished, the wine is then macerated for 2 weeks then pressed. The wine is matured for 14 months in 50 % New French Oak and 50% Austrian Oak Casks.
A more serious style of Zweigelt that will pair well with stews and rich dishes.
At the tender age of twenty-three, Markus Huber took over the task of making wine at his familyís winery in the Traisental region of Austria. The Huber family has been making wine from their land for five generations, but has owned it since 1778, which equates into nine generations. The first four generations practiced coopering. Markus and his father, Anton share the efforts of viticulture, while it is now all Markusís hand in the cellar. Wines from Austria named Markus Huber the young winemaker of the year 2002. Also in Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, edition 123 it is written that "25-year old Huber is one of the most promising new talents in the Austrian wine industry".
