The Wine: Zweigelt Saignée 2018
Der Rebenhof Zweigelt Saignée is a red natural wine made from 100% certified biodynamic Zweigelt grapes grown in Southern Styria, Austria.
Importer's notes: This Zweigelt comes from 30 year old vines grown on ancient river and lakebed deposits of sandstone, gravel and calcareous marl on a single steep slope. Aromas of hibiscus, rose and cherries. Tastes like steeped cranberries, sour smashed cherries and earthy roasted beets. This wine is fruity and savory with notes of sour blackberries and earthy pine forest floors. Enjoy chilled.
