Description

Origin and Terroir 
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. 
  
Grape Variety 
Blauer Zweigelt, also called Rotburger, is a typical Austrian grape variety and a crossing of Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent. The variety is rather uncomplicated to grow in the vineyards. Yields tend to become too high without a rigid quantity control. Zweigelt is mostly vinified to fresh, fruity and appealing red wines in Austria. Only 8% of Domäne Wachau?s total production is red wine (mainly Zweigelt, some Pinot Noir and St. Laurent). 
  
Classification 
Blauer Zweigelt Terrassen is ?quality wine from Wachau? according to the Austrian wine law. It is not presented as part of the three quality categories Steinfeder, Federspiel and Smaragd as these categories only apply for white wines and rosé wines. 
  
Vinification 
Zweigelt wines are rather uncomplicated to cultivate. Yields can become to high without rigid quality control but especially the unique growing conditions on the terraces limit the yields without intervention from the grower. The grapes for this Zweigelt were harvested from the middle of October. The grapes were destemmed, crushed and fermented using classical mash fermentation for several days. The wine matures in big wooden casks to achieve more balance and rounder tannins. 
  
Tasting Notes 
Medium ruby red with delicate purple highlights. Offering overt aromas of blackberry, cherry and some earthy tones. The detectable, yet balanced acidity and the soft tannins 
make this Zweigelt an enjoyable and pleasant red wine.  
 
Enjoyment 
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 to mature for 3-5 years.
