Domäne Wachau is one of Austria’s most renowned wineries, based in Austria’s most prestigious wine growing region, the Wachau. Steep terraced yineyards, a cool, marginal climate and meagre primary rock soils define the wines.
Grapes for Blauer Zweigelt Terrassen were carefully hand-picked from different small vineyards throughout the Wachau valley. A major part of the grapes originates from the villages of Weissenkirchen, Wösendorf and Joching. The Zweigelt vines grow mainly on terraced vineyards, partly loess terraces with heavier sandy soils, partly on steep walled terraces with primary rock.
These wines are medium ruby red with intense purple highlights. Fruit-driven aromas of wild strawberry, blackberry are accompanied by forest soil, hints of clove and black pepper fragrances. The palate is medium-bodied and elegant. The mouth-watering acidity balances the soft tannins to make this Zweigelt an enjoyable and pleasant red wine.
