Christoph Bauer- 2017
Zweigelt is the most widely planted red variety in Austria, and is well worth investigating. Intense and inky in colour, the nose is all blueberry and mulberry, followed by some deep blackberry flavours, edged with soft spice. Appealing and approachable.
Quality new Austrian estate, sited in Jetzelsdorf, near Haugsdorf on 20 hectares. Organic since 2015 Christoph Bauer works with his wife Heidi to produce excellent fruit-driven wines, whose character is helped on by the relatively high lime content of the local soils.
