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
Origin: Marlborough, New Zealand
