CARNUNTUM | ÖSTERREICH

Rubin Carnuntum 2016

 

ZWEIGELT a great popular favourite, and justifiably so. Seductive aromas of cherries and dark berries, soft and luxuriant on the palate, with a whiff of chocolate and a long finish.

  • site & soil the vineyards around the communities of Göttlesbrunn and Höflein provide the basis for this juicy red wine. The soft loess hillsides and the gravelly loam soils provide the ideal conditions for a fine but very substantial Zweigelt.

  • fermentation spontaneous fermentation on the skins at 30–32°C, followed by malolactic fermentation
  • élevage in French oak barriques and large wooden casks
  • alcohol 13.2%vol
  • residual sugar 1.4g/l
  • acidity 5.1g/l

Marvellous with game dishes, or beef every way imaginable – boiled, grilled, sautéed, stewed or raw as carpaccio. Fresh parsley or coriander support the lively nature of the wine.
