Zweigelt Nouveau 2022
Since always I dreamt of creating a wine that would celebrate the talents of Zweigelt. In my opinion, Zweigelt is a cool climate varietal, that should refresh and show and uncomplicated inspiring and unpretentious character.
With Zweigelt Nouveau, we bring a wine that corresponds to this profile. The grapes origin from very old Zweigelt vineyards, which we harvested rather early in order to avoid overmatured grapes. The whole bunches were softly smashed only by feet, and then fermented – with wild yeasts exclusively – between three and five days. After pressing, half of the wine went into stainless steel, half into old oak casks for finishing the fermentation.
Already in january we did a tirage, but very soft, in order to keep the CO2. In March 2023 the wine was bottled unfiltered.
With its name Zweigelt Nouveau, the wine refers to his famous cousins in Beaujolais. It is an Austrian wine who talks with a french accent, and it promises a lot of joie de vivre.Download
