Tasting notes:
Our Zweigelt Reserve shows deep red colour with a purple rim. In the nose the Reserve shows incredibly deep and fine fruit which remembers of fresh cherries, blueberries and hints of cinamon. On the palate it shows again spicy cherries and blueberries which are backed-up by fine spiciness. The wine ends in a long and elegant finish with fine notes of chocolate. Great ageing potential!
