Christophe Bauer, Zweigelt, 2018, Niederösterreich, Austria


Austrian red is coming into fashion. Zweigelt is a grape which generally makes very fruity, vibrant, fresh wines with an almost purple-pink colour to them. It's the most planted red variety in Austria and they've been making it into wine for a very long time. It's nothing new for them. But delicious when done right.

This wine is intensely fruity with a dark purple inky colour. It's soft, blueberry aromas are very approachable and accessible. It's a great wine if you're looking for something a bit lighter and fruitier, or for someone starting their journey into red wines. Typically, cider drinkers really like this wine... we think it's the fruitiness!

An organic estate since 2015, Christoph Bauer works with his wife Heidi to produce excellent fruit-driven wines.
