The name “Redmont” is a play on words for the south-facing slopes with the typical red gravel topsoils. These low fertile soils yield wines of great structure, fine aromas and great ageing potential. This finely balanced 2018 vintage is made of 55% Zweigelt, 20% Blaufränkisch, 25% Merlot.
Harvesting lasts from the beginning until the middle of September, with the grapes harvested by hand in multiple passes. The fermentation is spontaneous and lasts 14 days, on the skins at 30–32°C, followed by malolactic conversion and ageing of 16 months in French oak barriques.

CRITIC RATINGS93 Falstaff
On the nose the wine reveals powerful dark-fruits of plums, cherries and brambles aromaticity, with a brooding sweet spice and toast. On the palate it’s the wonderful core of sweet fruit makes this wine simply irresistible.
Pairs well with game and dark meat dishes with powerful sauces
