Eiswein perfection from red grapes.
Zweigelt is one of the three main indigenous grapes of Austria along with Blaüfrankisch and Sankt Laurent. It creates smooth, spicy, fruity aromatic wines which range in power from light, easy drinkers to powerful dark beasts! It is also a great grape for making eiswein and is getting increasing popularity in Niagara, Canada, where so many great ice wines are created.
The grapes for this wine, from Weingut Beyer, were harvested in the early morning hours on 26 January 2013 at a temperature of -10°C. The frozen grapes were pressed for 32 hour and matured in steel tanks for 22 months.
The aroma is full of candied peel and dried fruits and these carry through to the flavours. The wine has sufficient acidity to prevent cloyingness or oversweetness as the balance is excellent.
This is not just for collectors but they should get this in the cellar as soon as possible!
Flo says of the 2013 (Feb 2018): A fresh take on dessert wine, this toasty oak aged eiswein is moreish with fruity notes and an almond finish. Once you give it a try you wont want to stop drinking it!
