You want the refreshing savoury flexible style you might have had in Austria
Fruity smooth yet crunchy red with a hint of sour cherries

Our other Zweigelt are more refined but this is the classic juicy fruity spice as you will have had it on a terrace in Austria. One of the very nicest in that style.

I'm not sure there's anything it won't be nice with. It will be way better than most red wines with dishes that contain quite a bit of sharpness, for example tomato based sauces, anything pickled.
Tasting Notes

The wonderful aromas of this wine are enhanced by decanting.  Appearance is a mix of violet and ruby tones.

The Zweigelt Fels amWagram reminds you of ripe berries and cherries. It is also possible to spot a refreshing taste of sour cherries. This sophisticated wine has mellow tannins, which are
soft due to steel tank maturation. With a refined finish, this wine
is winning in its harmony and elegance.

Drinking well now are good for up to 10 years from vintage

Vintage 2018

From the 3rd level of Waldschütz wines known as the am Fels range. This wine owes its complexity and freshness to the terroir of the Schafberg, SE slopes super warm during the day with cold air from the nearby woods rapidly cooling the grapes at night leading to the development of complex aromas of both black and red fruits in the grapes.

The terroir Schafberg, with its deep loess soils, offers the best
conditions for a distinctive Blauer Zweigelt of the Wagram.
The special southeast-facing slopes allow for a maximal heating
during the day, while the cool air from the nearby forests enables a
quick cooling during night-time. This combination benefits the
development of aromas in the grapes.
