Viticulture tradition has been a top priority in Groß-Reipersdorf bei Pulkau since 1858. For Simone & Hannes, being a winemaker means capturing the fascination of nature, being sensitive to how the year is developing and bringing the best qualities that nature allows into the cellar. Pulkau fascinates with soils from Maissau granite to fine-grain loess soils on the foothills of the Manhartsberg. These conditions are the origin of their red wine affinity in the white wine-dominated Weinviertel, where they follow their tradition and rely on Zweigelt and St. Laurent. The future of Simone Hiller-Jordan is wine and so she took over the winery with great joy in 2010 and has been running it with enthusiasm and passion ever since.

Winemaking

Warm sandy soil and long maturation in perennial barriques form the basis for this fruity, powerful and dense Austrian Merlot. Also perfect with dark, chocolaty desserts. Spice, cassis and violets are at their best. Matured in perennial barriques. Decant 2-3 hours before drinking.

Tasting notes

Strong fruit, gooseberry and cassis; distinctly juicy and mature; dark nougat with spice, shows length and depth. Well interspersed with tannins. Very charming on the palate!

Recommended serving temperature: 16°C

Food pairing

This charming Merlot is especially recommended with a tender beef brisket from the smoker, but also with oven-fresh bruschetta. And here is a very special recommendation from the confectioner Simone: the Merlot is also simply brilliant with a triple chocolate cake.
