Zweigelt Göttweiger Berg 2018
Origin and Terroir
The grapes for this red wine were harvested from the vineyards situated around the “Göttweiger Berg” in the southern Kremstal. The vineyards grow mainly on gravel which is covered by a massive layer of loess. The warm Pannonian climate from the east is creating a micro-climate unique to the Danube valley. The combination of the well-suited soil along with the unique climate of the Danube valley lies the foundation for the perfect ripening of the grapes.
The Zweigelt grapes were harvested in October. In the cellar the grapes were destemmed and introduced to classic must fermentation. After several days the fermenting wine was pressed out and stored in stainless steel tanks and allowed to mature before the wine was carefully bottled.
Ruby and garnet colors in the glass, beautiful scents of cherries and fine spices develop in the nose, nice berry notes on the palate, fruity, trendy and smooth.
