The earthy crushed raspberry and pencil shaving aromas follow through on a soft, satiny entry to a dry-yet-fruity medium body, with a delicate touch of spice and crabapple. Finishes in lingering spiced poached apple, mineral, and wet cedar fade with lightly pithy tannins. The color is deep ruby with slight violet hues.
Varietals: 50% Pinot Noir / 50% Blauer Zweigelt
Sugar Level: 1 g/L
Zweigelt is Austria‘s no. 1 red grape variety producing wines that have a slight smokiness and velvety texture to them. Very appealing to many people as it is a light and easy to understand red.
