The Blauer Zweigelt Terrassen from Domäne Wachau is a velvety, pure grape variety red wine from the Austrian Wachau wine-growing region.
In the glass, this wine shimmers in a delicate ruby red with purple highlights. The inviting bouquet enchants the nose with fruity aromas of juicy cherries and ripe raspberries - accompanied by spicy and mineral hints. This Austrian red wine is wonderfully elegant, gentle and very harmonious on the palate. The juicy fruitiness and the spicy nuances harmonize wonderfully with the well integrated acidity and the velvety tannin structure. This red wine closes with a pleasantly long finish and is already very accessible at a young age.
Vinification of the Domäne Wachau Terrassen Blauer Zweigelt
The grapes are harvested by hand in mid-October and immediately taken to the wine cellar of the Domäne Wachau. There the grapes are completely destemmed, crushed and fermented on the mash for several days. This removes the desired colour pigments, aromas and soft tannins from the berry skins. Finally, this wine is drawn off and placed in large wooden barrels to mature so that it can be harmoniously rounded off.
