2016 Hans Herzog Zweigelt


Zweigelt has its origins in Austria as a cross of two native varietals but is now the widest planted grape variety in Austria, popular for its soft forward fruit driven style but combines with a very deep dark cherry colour.

Transposed to Marlborough, New Zealand, the wine retains the Black Forest Gateaux appeal with notes of cocoa and cherry yet with enormous depth and resonance from 18 months in French oak (40% new).

Perhaps the most accessible to the four Hans Herzog red wines, but this wine is not a fading lily – it is another elegant beast that will evolve for another 3 to 5 years. Compelling and beautiful.

"Aromas of blackberries, graphite, iron shavings and wet earth. Full-bodied with creamy tannins and a long, round finish. Structured in a soft and friendly way. Exceptional depth. From organically grown grapes." - James Suckling, 94 Points

Hans Herzog

New Zealand is not short of premium grape growers and winemakers but, for us, Hans Herzog stands among the very best. They have been selected by us for their organic, handmade, and characterful, wines that are full of charm and depth of fruit.

Here, all of the grapes are grown on their organic vineyard - one of Marlborough's best sites - then handpicked, produced, and bottled on the estate!

To go that extra step, even the bottling, labelling, and packaging, is all done at the winery to ensure the quality is never compromised.
