2017 Weingut Hajszan Neumann Nussberg Zweigelt

Biodynamically Farmed & Vegan Approved

Our lively wines have subtle corners and edges. And it’s good this way, because we love natural, authentic wines. Each one has a characteristic soul, which develops from the natural flavours of the grapes and the terroir. All this comes to fruition thanks to our biodynamic cultivation. We also work gently and reductively in the wine cellar.

Tasting Notes

The grapes for this Natural Zweigelt come from two particularly old vineyards in Ried Weisleiten on Vienna`s Nussberg. This bright, polished Zweigelt is quite dark and intense.

Nose

In the nose the wine is dominated of dark stone fruits together with nougat notes and a touch of orange zest.

Palate

In the mouth soft with taste of caramel, balanced with a good acidity. Sweetly extracted fruit lingers on the finish of this multifaceted, refreshing accompaniment to food. Fine texture and freshness on the palate with an engaging spiciness that leads to a fruity, cool finish.

Vineyard and cellar

Like all our vineyards, this one is also treated in a biodynamic way after the rules of Rudolph Steiner, the founder of biodynamic agriculture. After meticulous grape selection via hand–picking, the grapes for the Nussberg Zweigelt 2017 were destemed and after 3 weeks gently pressed. After the second fermentation, the malolactic fermentation, the wine was filled in Barriques.

We used mainly used oak barrels around which 25% were new oak barrels. After 18 months maturation, the wine was filled without filtration in the bottle. Following a moderate amount of time on the fine lees, the wine was bottled without any fining and less SO2. For that reason, this wine is also vegan.
