Cuvee Bertrand 2013, 13% alc., Red Dry, medium body
Abbot father Bertrand Baumann used to be responsible for the winery between 1958 and 1980 and played a major part in the development of the winery. In his days he belonged to the leading winemakers of Austria. The wines from the library are still documenting this period. This cuvée of Pinot Noir, St. Laurent and Zweigelt is dedicated to the memory of his achievements.
An animal edge at the beginning, but with air, the wine quickly opens and is very harmonious. Rich with fruit sweetness. On the palate, the vast proportion of Pinot presents a fine and smooth oily expression and ripe raspberry tone.Dense and lengthy
