Method
Grapes all come from the Eisenhut vineyard, the highest point south of Großriedenthal, sustainably farmed with minimal chemicals, in Arnold Holzer’s words: “the minimum required for that vintage, this is Austria after all…!” Relatively cool fermentation (around 22-26°C) then the wine spends
one year in large oak barrels.


Tasting Notes
Perfumed, herbaceous and with good structure. Naturally Zweigelt has lovely cherry flavours. Light-to-medium bodied with top concentration and a long, complex finish.

Food Matching

Very food friendly, suitable with a range of meat dishes, we reckon best with
schnitzel, roast pork or even game.
