2015 Rosi Schuster Rotberger (Zweigelt) Burgenland

SKU #1303689

Importer's Notes: "Rosi and Hannes Schuster have created a powerful style and a full-bodied and fruity Zweigelt. More muscle than is normal with this wine. This is a certified Organic winery. The style is concentrated with good extraction, but retains its brilliance and racy Zweigelt soul (Zweigelt is a cross of the St.Laurent and Blaufrankisch grapes.)"

Zweigelt is one of three varietals that are the main focus for the line of Rosi Schuster wines. Founded in 1979, the estate is now helmed by Schuster's son, Hannes. Working out of Burgenland, Austria's key red wine region, Hannes pursues small yields of exceptional fruit and allows both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation to occur spontaneously. I tasted this wine after it had seen a good amount of air and it was full of lively, juicy fruit with smashed blackberries, cherries and red plums. It's a little spicy and slightly bigger than the varietal is typically known for. It would be a great pairing for anything remotely resembling the hearty dishes Austria is famous for, such as Spätzle and Schnitzel. Fried chicken or a nice pork chop would be perfect for this.

This is somewhat "meaty" and filled with sweet red fruits and ripe berries. Here is a dark and complex bottle that is easy to drink and super food friendly.

- 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.
