Site, Vineyard and Soil
Weingarten Satzäcker and Kräutergarten in Oberwaltersdorf, limestony gravel soil. Mitterfeld 4 in Tattendorf, alluvial gravel soil.
Ruby red with bluish highlights. Delicate aroma of sour cherries and blueberries with a bit of chocolate soufflé fresh out of the oven and a whiff of black pepper. The Zweigelt is very appealing with its delicate glaze and echoes of cherry compote. The chocolate note keeps coming back into play. In the finish, the fine spicy air of late summer days in the Steinfeld mingles and reverberates together with the other flavours.
With pizza, soufflés, grilled vegetables, light dishes, white meat. Slightly chilled goes quite well with fish!
