Description

An excellent example of the native Austrian Zweigelt grape from Weinwurms winery. Grapes are manually harvested in mid October with a 10 day maceration before the wine spends 9 months in wooden barrels and bottle maturation for 6 months.

The result is a ruby red wine with aromas of juicy cherry and velvety tannins on the palate. While it is a denser wine, there is a freshness to the Zweigelt with toasted notes and a long finish. Try with pasta dishes, pizza, charcuterie or roasted vegetables.

Anton Weinwurm first planted a vineyard in the 1950s and since 2001, the 25 hectare estate has been run by Georg Weinwurm, a third generation winemaker. Located in the North-Eastern part of the Weinviertal, about 60 km from Vienna, the vineyards lie on soils of loess and clay with deep layers of gravel.
