Bright, fruity, unadulterated Zweigelt. A beautiful, dark, inky purple in the glass that gives way to sour cherry and blueberry. This purity is rounded off with a hint of that black pepper spice that is so characteristic of the variety. This lifted, juicy piquance makes it ideal with grilled meats, soft creamy cheeses and of course Austria's famous Wiener Schnitzel! A masterclass in how to show off Zweigelt to its best.
One thing that never fails to make us happy here at Swig, is seeing a vineyard filled with life. And no, we're not talking about the grapes growing on the vines, but the life beneath and around them, wildflowers growing between the rows, and the air buzzing with insects, bees and birds. Say no to monoculture, and yes to nature and organic farming! And that's just what we have at Winery Christoph Bauer, located north of Vienna, in the region of Weinviertel. Gruner Veltliner rules here as king, and Christoph and his wife Heidi are dedicated to producing artisan wines with clear varietal and vintage character, balancing traditions with modern innovations. We're delighted to have them join the Swig fav
