Wine Description:
Christina Zweigelt showcases the distinct qualities of loess soil. The grapes were selectively hand-picked and placed in large crates, ensuring optimal condition upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at approximately 26°C. After a brief maceration period of around two weeks, the wine was pressed and transferred to large wooden barrels where it matured for five months. The wine was bottled unfiltered with minimal sulfur addition, preserving its natural flavors and integrity. This Zweigelt embodies a harmonious balance of traditional techniques and modern precision, offering a pure expression of its terroir. Read more

Body
info
Wine acidity refers to the tartness of a wine, which gives a tingling sensation on the side of the tongue. A metallic-like sharp taste is also associated with high acidity. Sometimes a high level of sweetness, such as in luscious dessert wines, can disguise a high level of acidity. Acidity can range from soft to searing.
Acidity

Wine tannin gives wine its textural mouthfeel and astringency. Tannin is a natural compound found in grape skins, seeds, and stems. It contributes to the structure and helps to balance out the sweetness of the fruit. Tannins are usually discussed when it comes to red wines, even though some white and rosé wines with certain wine making techniques can also contain tannins.
