Wachau Panorama
2015 | Blauer Zweigelt Terrassen

Origin: Austria - Wachau | Variety: Blauer Zweigelt | Producer: Domäne Wachau

Domäne Wachau is one of Austria’s most renowned wineries, based in Austria’s most prestigious wine growing region, the Wachau. Steep terraced yineyards, a cool, marginal climate and meagre primary rock soils define the wines.

Grapes for Blauer Zweigelt Terrassen were carefully hand-picked from different small vineyards throughout the Wachau valley. A major part of the grapes originates from the villages of Weissenkirchen, Wösendorf and Joching. The Zweigelt vines grow mainly on terraced vineyards, partly loess terraces with heavier sandy soils, partly on steep walled terraces with primary rock.

Tasting Note
Medium ruby red with intense purple highlights. Offering intense fruit notes of wild strawberries, blackcurrant, sour cherry, forest soil, hints of cloves and black pepper. Medium-bodied and elegant on the palate. The present, yet balanced acidity and the soft tannins make this Zweigelt an enjoyable and pleasant red wine.

How to enjoy best
Serve at 17°C. This wine perfectly accompanies a wide variety of dishes such as pasta or pizza and veal- or beef dishes. Drink now or store for maturation up to 3-5 years.
