Zweigelt 2011

This classic Zweigelt comes from the Heideboden and is matured in large wooden barrels. A fruity, elegant wine with such juicy tannins and a fune structure. 

Tasting Notes

This wine is a deep ruby red with purple rim and highlights, and has a brambly black fruit nose similar to fresh baked plum pie. The sweet black plum fruit follows through on the palate with a nice balance of acidity and medium tannin. This is a good quality wine which has beautiful ripe juice fruit up front.

Food Pairing

This Zweigelt has a wide variety of pairings including duck rillettes or rabbit rillettes. This wine also goes with Greek marinated lamb with fresh herbs in a pita with tzatziki sauce. Also with duck in a cherry sauce or pork loin.
