Zweigelt Schrattenthal 2023

Zweigelt is Austria’s most widely-cultivated red varietal, and is also widespread in the tiny red wine island of Schrattenthal. Propagated from the Blaufraenkisch and St. Laurent types, and like the Gruener Veltliner an Austrian speciality, this classic Wine Quarter red wine is perfectly at home in our sandy loess soil. Our local wine from Zweigelt.

  • Slightly reductive nose of ripe sour cherries and bitter chocolate, elegant and fruity, fine spice with lots of structure and stimulating acidity, delicate, elegant roasted aromas on the finish.
  • Can be recommended as the ideal accompaniment for a wide variety of dishes ranging from dry-cured ham and beef tongue to wild duck or veal.
