Christina Zweigelt

$17.00

Christina Netzl on this wine: “The Zweigelt grapes love warm days and cooler nights, and most importantly windy places. Our warm Pannonian climate combined with cool winds from the Danube river, therefore, represent the ideal conditions for our most important grape variety. The grapes are able to ripen all while keeping their fresh cherry aromas and juicy palate!” Cellar: Grapes are hand-harvested and destemmed to stainless steel tanks. The spontaneous fermentation is slow due to the cool temperatures in the old cellar. Malolactic fermentation in old big oak vats, where the wine rests for another 4 months. The wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered with a small addition of sulfur. Personality: As Christina herself exclaims: "We love the Zweigelt-grape!” Light red with purple glints, juice cherry aromas in the nose, red berries, soft and silky tannins, and fresh finish, this is one tasty addition. Serve lightly chilled.
