Tasting Notes

Importer's Notes: "Rosi and Hannes Schuster have created a powerful style and a full-bodied and fruity Zweigelt. More muscle than is normal with this wine. This is a certified Organic winery. The style is concentrated with good extraction, but retains its brilliance and racy Zweigelt soul (Zweigelt is a cross of the St.Laurent and Blaufrankisch grapes.)"

    Zweigelt is one of three varietals that are the main focus for the line of Rosi Schuster wines. Founded in 1979, the estate is now helmed by Schuster's son, Hannes. Working out of Burgenland, Austria's key red wine region, Hannes pursues small yields of exceptional fruit and allows both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation to occur spontaneously. I tasted this wine after it had seen a good amount of air and it was full of lively, juicy fruit with smashed blackberries, cherries and red plums. It's a little spicy and slightly bigger than the varietal is typically known for. It would be a great pairing for anything remotely resembling the hearty dishes Austria is famous for, such as Spätzle and Schnitzel. Fried chicken or a nice pork chop would be perfect for this.

    This is somewhat "meaty" and filled with sweet red fruits and ripe berries. Here is a dark and complex bottle that is easy to drink and super food friendly.
