Tasting notes:
 

Incredibly deep red characterizes our Zweigelt. In the nose the wine shows deep fruit of fresh cherries and dark berries with some hints of cinamon. On the palate the wine seduces with juicy fruit paired with fine acidity. The medium body is backed up by fine acidity and end in a long and mouthfilling finish
