Weingut Netzl - Christina Zweigelt, Carnuntum Austria (2020)
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.
Austria's renowned warm, Pannonian climate combined with cool winds from the Danube river represent the ideal conditions for these grapes to ripen all while keeping their fresh cherry aromas and juicy palate.
With 100% Zweigelt on loess soils, the 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.
