Zweigelt Reserve

vintage 2018

Site, Vineyard and Soil
Weingarten Satzäcker und Kräutergarten, from old parcels - up to 40 years old - warm limestony gravel soil.

Deep dark red with an almost black core. In the nose an intense aroma of ripe wild strawberries, blackheart cherries, nougat and white pepper. Towards the back of the palate, a whiff of the herb garden. On the palate, juicy dark cherries, blackberries, chilli with bitter chocolate and thyme. Shows the perfect balance between animated acidity and its juicy core of sweet fruit.
