The Blauer Zweigelt Terrassen from Domäne Wachau is a velvety, grape varietal red wine from the Austrian wine growing region Wachau.
In the glass, this wine shimmers in a delicate ruby red with purple highlights. The inviting bouquet enchants the nose with fruity aromas of juicy cherries and ripe raspberries - accompanied by spicy and mineral hints. Wonderfully elegant, gentle and very harmonious, this Austrian red wine presents itself on the palate. The juicy fruit fullness and spicy nuances harmonize wonderfully with the well-integrated acidity and velvety tannin structure. This red wine closes with a pleasantly long finale and is already very accessible at a young age.
Vinification of the domain Wachau Terraces Blauer Zweigelt
The grapes are harvested by hand in mid-October and immediately brought to the wine cellar of the domain Wachau. There, the harvested material is completely destemmed, mashed and first fermented on the mash for several days. As a result, the desired color pigments, aromas and gentle tannins are removed from the berry skins. Finally, this wine is pulled off and matured in large wooden barrels so that it can round off harmoniously.
