Even though it was produced in the year that the sistas officially took over the winery from their parents, this blend feels a bit like a step back in time. It’s the kind of red cuvée that was very popular in Burgenland in the 1990s or the early 2000s.

It’s big, ripe and chocolately, lacking the lightness of touch or the freshness that I love in so many of the Rennersistas labels.

Aged in large-format oak barrels, it nonetheless feels a little marked by the wood.
