Zweigelt
Sachsenberg

Juicy, fruity, Zweigelt Strassertal! The Blickenweg offers the best conditions for the Zweigelt grapes. Heavy, nutrient-rich loess soils with an optimal water supply ensure aromatic cherry fruit. After malolactic fermentation, the Zweigelt makes its way into large barrels made of Manhartsberger oak, where it matures on the lees for about 12 months.

The main harvest for our Zweigelt Sachsenberg takes place in mid-October. Due to the pre-harvest for our sparkling wines, just under half of the grapes remain on the vine. The free-standing Zweigelt berries can ripen under good conditions during this period. After a maceration period of just under two weeks, the Zweigelt Sachsenberg makes its way into already used barrique barrels, where it develops subtle piquant notes in addition to the intense cherry fruit.
