Ripe grapes, gentle vinification and twelve months of Barrique aging in small new oak barrels form a jutting red wine with great potential. It is just right for wine enthusiasts and connoisseurs of strong and expressive reds. This wine, named after a star represents the most distinguished Zweigelt type and fully accentuates this grape’s strengths.
NEUSIEDLERSEE DAC RESERVE stands for a Zweigelt that has grown here but is at home all over the world. Soil, climate and experience in vinification combine in an exemplary manner to form an impressive example of its kind: typical and powerful, an essence of nature and wine culture on Lake Neusiedl.
When poured, the Capella shines with a ruby red core and violet reflections. In the nose, the typical Zweigelt cherry fruit combines with dark berry aromas and rum plums, supported by fine toasted nuances. On the palate it is fruity, of great complexity with mild tannins and pleasant fullness.
This wine is excellent with a festive meal as an accompaniment to dark meat, game dishes and strong cheeses.
Needs about 2-4 years after the harvest to reach its optimum. After that it will be good to drink for at least 5 more years.
