Maria & Sepp Muster Steirerland 'Graf Zweigelt' 2011
Juicy, varietal Zweigelt from Austria’s southern Styria region. Bordering with Slovenia, the Musters’ 10 hectares of vines are farmed all biodynamically, ideally situated on sloping hills of clay-silt soils. The final wine is plush and meaty, with notes of sappy cherry and gritty tannic structure. Serve slightly chilled.
Another of Austria’s local reds whose mere mention prompts unsolicited Schwartzenegger impressions while producing wines with purple-black hues and a tarry savor under its violet-tinged fruit.More wines with this grape
The land of Schwartzenegger and strudel delivers ethereal, electric whites along the Danube, but Grüner and Riesling aren't the whole story; its savory, mineral, lightweight reds can be revelatory.
