Rosenberg 2011


One of Carnuntum’s great classics, a wine that represents its origins in an ideal manner; very tightly structured and concentrated on the palate, deep garnet with an intense aroma of dark berries, cassis, juniper and cloves. Marvellously elegant tannins and an endless finish.

Ried Rosenberg Wild roses grow on the hillsides, giving their name to this site, surrounded by forest at an elevation of 250m. Here we cultivate 4.8 hectares of vineyard, which benefit from the cooler location. The subsoil is composed of sediments from the primordial sea, with clay, limestone & various types of sand, while the surface layer features a thick layer of Danube gravels, some 30–40 cm. The nature of the soil, of course, changes a bit up and down the slope. In the uppermost portion, Rosenberg is rather meagre and gravelly. There, we have planted Merlot & Blaufränkisch. Farther downhill, the soil becomes deeper with more clay, and Zweigelt gives best results. more info
