91 points Wine Enthusiast: "A touch of reduction needs to dissipate before juicy, vivid and wonderfully tart cherry notes can take over. They are starting to party on the vivacious, slender palate, where juicy freshness reigns. A lovely, wonderfully unpretentious Zweigelt with real verve. Alcohol 12.5%. (Sep 2019)"

Ruby red color, spicy in the nose with impressions of pepper and cherries, on the palate flavorings of cherries and raspberries with fine, long and balanced finish. Classic, medium weight Zweigelt, very clean from the stellar 2017 vintage. Biodynamic, natural yeasts, large neutral barrels for aging. Grapes grown on rocky gravelly soil, vines between 15 and 30 years old. The Zweigelt grape is also known as Rotburger, which was one of the original names from when the grape was created by crossing the Blaufrankisch and St.Laurent varietals.
