2009 Walter Glatzer Riedencuvée Zweigelt

SKU #1069574

According to the Wine Spectator: "Ripe, with good depth and richness to the dark plum, mocha and mineral flavors. There's plenty of vanilla and spice as well, with a plush finish. Drink now through 2014." (05/11) 100% Zweigelt, a St. Laurent-Blaufränkisch cross, this wine shows classic Zweigelt cherry fruit aromas with a raciness and spicy/savory complexity that makes it comparable to a young cool-climate Syrah. There's a pleasing cracked pepper element in the nose and a little gaminess on the palate, adding depth to the fruit and length to the finish. Highlighted as a top Austrian value by Terry Theise from the 2009 collection.

Austria

- Austria is a well-respected wine-growing region in Europe. Yet, even though they make about a third the volume of wine as Germany, not many of these fine bottles make it to the shelves of American wine merchants or restaurants. Lucky for us, their anonymity has translated into incredible value from simple, everyday whites to exquisite dessert wines. Austria shares many grape varieties with Germany—Riesling is king here, too. But the style of Austrian whites is much dryer and more potent. Grüner Veltliner is Austria's second-most-important varietal and makes whites of great versatility and pleasure. Click for a list of bestselling items from Austria.
