Neusiedlersee DAC Zweigelt 2017
Zweigelt is an indigenous Austrian grape and probably the most important of all our red wine varieties nowadays. Decades ago our family was among the first who planted these then new vines in Gols, today’s Zweigelt capital of the world. This allows us not only to look back on many great vintages but also gave us lots of experience with this fine grape that we’re very fond of.
NEUSIEDLERSEE DAC stands for a Zweigelt that is just at home here. Soil, climate and winemaking experience together form an authentically styled, likeable-fruity wine that is typical for the grape as well as the Neusiedlersee growing region.
Our NEUSIEDLERSEE DAC gleams purple red in its glass. The bouquet offers hints of aromatic cherries and the wine is pleasingly smooth on the palate. It is simply a great representative of the fruity Zweigelt type from the Neusiedlersee growing area.
Zweigelt can be combined with lots of meat and noodle dishes. It can be enjoyed in quiet moments or just if one feels the desire to.
Reaches its optimum about one to two years after the harvest. Can be easily kept for 4 or more years.

Distincitve and majestic like the stork.
The stork is without question the unofficial heraldic animal of the Burgenland. Storks are an impressive sight on the ground as well as in the air. Quite often they can be seen nearby while working in the vineyards. They hunt for worms and mice and because nobody would think about harming them, they have become less shy over time. It does sometimes happen that a stork lingers very close to people or machines and just minds its own business without being disturbed at all.
