About this product
"Dark, youthful, clear cherry red; charming bouquet of sour cherries, ripe berries, plums, and toasty, spicy aromas reminding of the woods of the Kamptal. Dry, with good acidity, a lot of fresh cherry and a whiff of ripe berry fruit on the palate, balanced and well structured, sappy with still some grip of mature grape and oak tannin, hints of dark chocolate, minerals and spice at the finish."
"Only a few people might know that the family of Dr. Zweigelt, who managed to interbreed the variety out of Blaufrankisch and St. Laurent (a native grape linked to Pinot noir) in 1922, had vineyards and their cellar in Langenlois. Willi Brundlmayer bought the Zweigelt Cellar from Herwig Zweigelt together with a part of his vineyards. Traditionally we make a classic varietal wine from Zweigelt/Rotburger and only recently are exploring the potential as a reserve quality of this truly "all Austrian varietal". Winery Notes
