Zweigelt 2017

Character

This Zweigelt represents the secure comfort of home and tells pleasant stories of the geological diversity around Lake Neusiedl. It is simultaneously a thoroughly hones documentation of its origin and the year 2017, which bequeathed grapes with the extraordinary fineness of a diamond cut on their way to realising their potential. In a circle dance of aromas, all varieties of cherry from morello to  cornelian are endowed three-dimensional depth through fine-grained, yet catchy tannins. Despite all finesse and sheer, cool elegance, one attribute remains which the heart of this Zweigelt sings: pure juiciness. To allow this mouth-watering juiciness to flow unhindered, serve best at 15-16° C (59-61° F).

Origin

Zweigelt performs a uniting role in terms of origin at our estate: the grapes stem from flat, humus-rich plots in the Heideboden, gravelly sites on the Parndorfer Platte (Parndorfer Plain), and limestone and schistous slopes of the Leithaberg (Leitha Mountains).
