Grape - Zweigelt

Where - Niederosterreich, Austria

What - A ready-to-drink allrounder for any occasion. The Basis Zweigelt is a delicious natural red wine!


A blend of organic grapes are harvested from three young vineyards around the Niederosterreich region of Austria. They ferment in whole bunches which results in semi-carbonic fermentation in huge 3500-litre barrels. Skin-contact ensues for a further two weeks then the juice is aged in fibreglass for two years. It is bottled unfined, unfiltered and with the addition of minimal sulphite. 


Matthias has learnt his craft from some of the best South African winemakers before returning home to focus on indigenous Austria varieties. The result of this training means really drinkable reds that everyone will love. 


Expect flavours of blueberry, spice, coriander and mulberry. Banging! 


Food-friendly, easygoing, fruity. Low intervention. Organic practicing. Minimal sulphites. ABV 11.5%.
