Blaufränkisch/Zweigelt/Syrah "Failed Empires"
48% Blaufränkisch, 48% Rotburger (aka Zweigelt), 4% Syrah. This is a light red wine. The Austrian varieties saw just a few hours of maceration and the must was fermented in stainless steel tank. A small proportion of Syrah was blended in when the wine was racked to neutral barrels and rested on fine lees for 4 months. 35 ppm SO2 added before bottling. Unfined & unfiltered.
