2020 Josef Chromy Zweigelt
The first release from our new block of Zweigelt, grafted over in 2016. We will only ever produce a maximum of 2 T off this single block, so each vintage will be very limited.
A touch of dolerite-inspired minerality underneath red cherry aromatics. The palate is ripe and utterly juicy, embedded in balm-like texture and softened, fine tannins. Graphite edges offer vivid freshness.
Originating in Austria from a crossing of Blaufrankisch, known for its bite, and St Laurent, known for its body. Zweigelt is the third most widely planted red grape variety in the Czech Republic, where it is called Zweigeltrebe. A dry, medium-body red wine showing a touch more richness and intensity than pinot noir.
