Zweigelt Reserve 2018
Origin and Terroir
The grapes for this Zweigelt originate from the vineyards around the ‘Göttweiger Berg‘ in the southern region of the Kremstal. The vineyards grow on mainly warm gravel soil covered by a massive layer of loam and loess. The warm Pannonian climate from the East is creating a micro-climate unique to the Danube valley. The combination of the well-suited ground along with the unique climate of the Danube valley is the foundation for the perfect ripening of the grape.
For this Zweigelt the grapes were harvested, rushed to the cellar where they were destemmed and introduced to a classic must fermentation. After fermentation the wine was pressed and a malolactic fermentation was completed. The Zweigelt was matured 12 months in small oak barrels before being bottled.
Ruby and garnet colors in the glass, beautiful scents of cherries and fine spices develop in the nose, nice barrique tones, powerful and substantial on the palate; a wine with high aging potential.
