Common name in Austria (vernacularly "Gleich'presster" or "Gleipresster") for a light red rosé wine. After a short standing time of only a few hours on the mash, the pressing takes place immediately (in Austrian "gleich'presster" or "gleich", from which the name is derived). According to Austrian wine law, the label must contain the name of the grape variety, for example "Gleichgepresster aus Zweigelt" or, since the 2018 vintage, as an alternative "weiß gepresst aus Zweigelt". The designation "Blanc de noirs" may be used in addition (this is tolerated). An Gleichgepresster corresponds analogously to Süßdruck (Switzerland), Kretzer (South Tyrol), Weißherbst (Germany) and Vin gris (France).
