The Story

Red Star is a blend of pinot noir and merlot; the former contributes finesse, the latter adding structure and body. It is a ‘by the glass’ wine to be served in restaurants. It is Styria’s version of the Valpolicella or Beaujolais wines. This is what Red Star is today, but what about tomorrow? The majority of wine for Red Star will be bottled as Passion (pinot noir) and Skywalker (merlot); however, as barrels must be kept full, some of the top quality raw product will remain. Quantities will be scarce, however; a mere barrel or two. The wine is maturing in American and French oak barrels. Colour Distinct, ruby red. Aroma A youthful, fruity, spicy bouquet, reminiscent of fully-ripe red fruit, cherries, sour-cherries, liquorice; with a hint of vanilla and a roasting sensation. Palate Dry in the mouth, medium-bodied, with a lot of character and low in tannins, giving it balance and making it drinkable immediately after it is placed on the market. Red Star with food It goes extremely well with steak, cold meats, steak tartare, all types of meat served with a brown gravy and game, as well as with ragout or wild game pasta, and with a superb pizza.

Very elegant and smooth. Not much acidity, tanins are med-high and make this cuvee very drinkable! Just do it!

Wery harmonised wine, the tanins are nice and smooth. Fruty taste, not to much oak. Perfect with dark meet and game.
