2015 Zweigelt (Hillinger)

Hillinger, Zweigelt, Burgenland, Austria, 2011

100% Zweigelt

DEEP RED, SPICES & CHERRY, PINOT NOIR-ESQUE

Leo Hilinger brings us a beautiful version of Zweigelt [Zveye-gehlt]. This red grape was created in 1922 by crossing the Blaufrankish and St. Laurent vines. Today, this is Austria's most planted red grape vine. With a deep red color and a cinnamon, black cherry aroma, this soft tannin, fruity red is easy to drink and reminds us of a full bodied style of pinot noir. Leo employs both oak barrel and stainless steel tank aging to add just a little wood spice and dark chocolate in the mouth.

Serving Suggestions: Roast pork tenderloin with our own Hook's 1 year blue made into a blue cheese sauce; or one of Phoebe's savory cheese, bacon and veggie pies.

2015 Zweigelt (Edelbauer, Christoph)

Christoph Edelbauer, Zweigelt, Kamptal, Austria 2015{organic}

100% Zweigelt

MULBERRY RICHNESS & BLACKBERRY BRIGHTNESS, SUAVE SANDALWOOD

"Forest berries and smoky aromas! Creamy with a little bit of caramel! Powerful with broad shoulders." Zweigelt’s intensely berryish energy reminds wine lovers of everything from Zinfandel to Dolcetto, and the comparisons frequently seem to miss their mark. The variety is simply one of a kind. It bursts from the glass with dense, fiercely purple (and fiercely approachable fruit), offering reds with very distinctive personalities. While Kamptal (generally speaking) is better known for its whites, this is one of the most commanding (though still gentle) Austrian reds we’ve ever sunk our teeth into.

Serving Suggestion: Lightly breaded, fried, pork cutlets w/ beet, red cabbage, & dried cranberry salad. Enchiladas w/ sweet potato, shiitakes, & sour cream.

2014 Zweigelt (1 liter) (Paul D.)

Paul D., Zweigelt, Wagram, Austria, 2014

100% Zweigelt

SPICY EARTH, RASPBERRY FRUIT, DELICIOUS

On a wine buying trip in Austria, Paul Direder stood before me looking barely old enough to drive. He smiled as we sampled his wine and stood nervously with his mother at his side waiting for a reaction. His first vintages were brilliant and he's still just 20 years old. The family farm dates back to 1849 and Paul D. carries on the family's agricultural name with none other than Anton Bauer as his mentor. Austria's Zweigelt grape varietal is something like a zin/pinot noir/ montepulciano. Spicy, medium to full-bodied, balanced raspberry fruit but not a drop of oak to be found here. Pure drinkability and a possible house red this summer. It's also 1 liter (33% more than a regular bottle). You are tasting a rising star in Austrian winemaking. Serve cool, with a slight chill.

Serving Suggestion: An essential summer red drinking wine for the beach, picnics, and all kinds of off the grill foods like fish, chicken and burgers.
