Zweigelt Classic, Fischer, Austrian Red Wine
Weingut Fischer, Soosz, Thermenregion
The Fischer winery in red wine village Sooβ south of Vienna was founded in 1662. Christian Fischer took over the winery from his father in the 1980’s and started ageing his red wines in French oak barriques, a novelty in the region at the time. Now fully organic, Christian and his daughter Franziska produce elegant, complex and age worthy reds.
Fischer’s classic Zweigelt is made only from handpicked grapes from the Fasangarten vineyard. Zweigelt is THE signature Austrian red grape variety, Dr. Zweigelt created it by crossing Blaufränkisch and St, Laurent exactly 100 years ago. Fischer’s high trained vines average 38 years in age yielding only 49hl/ha. Fermented 7 days in stainless steel and matured in old, large oak. Ruby in colour, typical ‘Zweigelt‘ red and sour cherry flavours, fresh and fruity, some spice and a hint of tannin at the finish.
Great with tomato based pasta dishes, pizza and lamb.
