Naturalny Zweigel, niefiltrowany, niesiarkowany, niezapomniany. Jeśli chcemy spróbować doskonałej jakości owocu zamkniętego w butelce to koniecznie musimy sięgnąć po to naturalne wino. Winifikacja w betonie, 9-tygodniowa maceracja na skórkach, dała wino w swej naturalnej postaci. Doskonały owoc, czysta wiśnia podbita pieprzem i bardzo drobną taniną. Zjawiskowe!

NATURAL Zweigelt 2018

Soil: The grapes for the Natural Zweigelt come from two particularly old vineyards in Ried Weisleiten on Vienna’s Nussberg. A rather heavy and in some areas very iron-rich soil characterizes these vineyards, which result in a very dark-fruity Zweigelt type.

Vineyard and cellar: After we had successfully produced a small series of mash fermented white wines for a few years, starting in 2015, the idea came up to implement an alternative style on the red wine side. Zweigelt from old vines on the Nussberg forms the basis, maceration and longer storage on the skin (9 weeks) leads to an intense and dark berry fruit, as well as a lively tannin structure. The wine is then not aged in wood, but in concrete eggs, which can breathe in the same way as wooden barrels, but do not bring those typical oak tones or toasty aromas. Of course, the wine is neither fined, nor filtered, nor sulfurized, just as we do with the mash-fermented white wines of the NATURAL series. After about 6 months of storage, the wine is put together and bottled, and after several months of aging in the bottle is ready.

Tasting notes: Dark fruit, black cherry and plum on the nose, with some herbs and spices. Fine tannins and fresh acidity on the palate with a fruity, cool finish. Great companion for stews.
