Hans Herzog Zweigelt 2015

Winemakers Vintage Report:  We hand-picked this exuberant Austrian grape variety (crossing of ‘Blaufränkisch x St.Laurent’) at a low yield of 700g/vine mid of April. A fantastic long warm growing season greatly enhanced the flavours.

Winemaking Comment:  The Zweigelt spent 21 days on the skins progressing to a natural wild yeast fermentation. After gentle pressing the wine was transferred into French Barriques (40% new) where it progressed to the natural malolactic fermentation and matured on its fine lees for 18 months. No fining. No filtration.

Winemakers Tasting Note:  The wonderful dark purple colour of this wine is a tastebud sensation! Sweet and savoury like a ‘Black Forest Gateau’ in a bottle! Wonderful aromas of dark chocolate, juicy ripe plums, sweet Damson plums and prunes with spicy undertones. There is a hint of black pepper, tobacco, Mediterranean herbs and liquorice. A flavour powerhouse and a highly complex wine with a great lively acidity, structure, soft tannins and a lingering finish. This is a wine built to last….
