Zweigelt Reserve, Weinbau Sattler (Neusiedlersee) 2003

Delicious red from Zweigelt vines over 40 years-old planted in gravelly soil. The nearby Lake Neusiedlersee moderates the temperature year-round resulting in very even ripening. Zweigelt is a cross between Blaufrankish and St. Laurent grape varietals, and is at its best when picked at its ripest, like this 2003. Outstanding vintage for this Zweigelt! Excellent concentration. Delicious layers of black cherry, beets, and earthy spices. Very charming!

"A dark and glossy wine, with an attractive dark purple hue, just tinged with a vibrant red rim. Again, the nose speaks of the vintage, as the pure, explosive cassis fruit lies with a more brooding, smoky, dense and chewy blueberry character. Full, creamy and ripe, with fairly low acidity lending a plump and approachable mouthfeel to this wine. Ripe tannic structure, giving a sense of focus on the palate, although only really showing any dominance on the finish. Really very enjoyable; the Sattler style, ripe wines full of fruit and intended for conspicuous enjoyment, really suit this vintage. This is another crowd-pleaser. Very good indeed." 17/20 Wine Doctor
