A delicious example of this classic Austrian elegant varietal - juicy, ripe and generous. A wine which would appeal equally to Argentinian Malbec drinkers as to your Austrian Zweigelt drinkers.
Zweigelt Reserve is made from 100% Blauer Zweigelt grapes cultivated in Sepp Moser's Hedwighof vineyard, in the warm southern Neusiedlersee village of Apetlon. The vineyard is around 117 metres above sea level (so at a comparatively low altitude), with deep dark topsoil and gravel beneath, which benefits from plenty of sunshine. The grapes are hand harvested towards the end of September/start of October. The grapes are de-stemmed and crushed, with spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel tanks with 3 weeks spent on the skins. The wine is aged for 18 months in used 225 litre oak barrels. Drink over the next 8 - 10 years.
Ripe cherry, herbal and cedar wood aromas. The palate has good weight with juicy plum and red berry fruit, bright acidity, supple balancing tannins and a bitter cherry twist on the finish.
Try with pork dishes, goulash or ratatouille.
