Young winemaker Arnold Holzer’s bright red Zweigelt from the loess soils of Wagram in Austria. Holzer took over the estate in 2010, aged just 23. His vineyards are dotted around Grossriedenthal in the heart of Wagram and benefit from the löss (clay) soils that lend a pronounced fruit-rich quality to all of his wines.
This Zweigelt is ripe with gently spicy summer berry and red cherry fruit. Succulent and mouth-watering acidity on the finish with hints of black pepper and silky-fine tannin.
Zweigelt is one of those rare reds that pair well with fish, particularly shellfish. Try pairing it with fish cooked in wine or tomato-based sauce to really bring out the flavours. Also works well with terrine, smokey tofu, smokey bacon crisps or a bacon butty
