This is a blend of Pinot Noir, St. Laurent, and Zweigelt.  It is named after Father Bertrand Bauman who managed the winery from 1958 to 1980 is considered one of Austria's top winemakers.  It is not a wine that I had seen before, but that is too bad.  A delightful wine that is a very nice value.  Ruby in color, clear and bright.  The nose has red berries with a slight char.  Just a whiff of fresh (wild) herbs.  Medium bodied.  Medium tannins.  Moderate acidity.  On the palate, cranberries and cherries with lots of vibrancy.  Moderate finish.  This drinks easy but has some depth.  Drink over the next few years.  It would go well with roasted duck.
