Description

This Burgenland Zweigelt reveals a wonderfully dense and powerful aroma spectrum, reminiscent of ripe heart cherries, dried plums, cranberries, blackberry jam, steppe herbs, orange zest, eucalyptus, nuances of cinnamon and cloves as well as fine roasted aromas. On the palate, the full power of the Zweigelt unfolds - dense, supple, finesse-rich and powerful. Juicy fruit of black cherries, underlaid with some mint, delicate touch of figs, plum roast, delicate herbal spice, fleshy, full- bodied, fresh, slightly salty minerality, milk chocolate, present tannic rip, fine roasted aroma, wonderful fruit sweetness, lingers forever and is very profound. Awarded 93 points by Falstaff.

Grape variety

Zweigelt

Flatterer with a backbone

The Zweigelt is an Austrian original. Fritz Zweigelt crossed it in 1922 at the Klosterneuberg Orchard and Viniculture School ("Obst- und Weinbauschule Klosterneuburg") from the red varieties Blaufränkisch and Saint Laurent. Zweigelt's main quality is being marvellously drinkable. With its exuberant berry fruit and juicy structure, it fits like no other to the pleasurable lifestyle of our Austrian neighbours. One thinks, for example, of a hearty Brettjause in the wine tavern. It can, however, also assemble well with other grape varieties, and expand in wooden barrels for more backbone. No wonder it is the most planted grape variety in Austria. One curiosity: the Japanese island of Hokkaido grows 230 hectares of Zweigelt.

Burgenland: Reds, sweets and other wonders

Burgenland is often referred to in Austria as the new wine world. In fact, wines – with exceptions like the nobly sweet Ruster Ausbruch – were almost entirely unknown here 20 years ago. Today, the most substantial red wines in Austria mature here. And the sweet wine scene is also stronger than ever before. Even the whites – for instance, in the Leitha Mountains – are on the upswing. The basis for this wine wonder are the various terroirs that overlay the land in a complex patchwork.

Austria – Sumptuous culture, accessible to all

Austria is characterized by unbelievable topographical diversity. A flat steppe in the east, forests and hills in the Alpine regions, wetlands and Mediterranean landscapes in the south. This in addition to a rich tradition and even greater love. It’s no surprise that the Romans found joy on this patch of Earth and cultivated wine growing. Austrian wine is not abundant, but it is high quality.
