Blauer Zweigelt

Blauer Zweigelt

From the Rhine Falls

Intense ruby. With a little air the wine shows blackberries, plums, spices. In the palate it is slim, straight-lined, juicy, with fine fruit, structured, dense but not heavy, the tannins are already well integrated, and aromatic; a racy acidity resonates. Dark and fruity with blackcurrants, blackberries which extend pleasantly long at the finish. It is not a complex wine, but with an extraordinarily beautiful harmony, it has a lot of traction, freshness and character.

Our red wines

Our red wines are gently destemmed, partly fermented as whole grapes and then spontaneously fermented in large wooden barrels (grape yeasts). We gently press the grapes to avoid releasing bitter tannins. Then, a subsequent second fermentation (BSA) along with a long ageing on the yeast in large or small wooden barrels. Filtration happens only if necessary, and a small addition of sulphur before bottling and filling by gravity takes place. Our red wines are storage wines that are designed to age for a few more years.
