Zweigelt Sonnhof

Zweigelt Sonnhof

Ref: A097515

The nose exhibits plenty of fresh fruit – pronounced cherry and red berries with nuances of blood orange that become increasingly notice-able on the palate. Abundant spice, particularly pepper, completes the spectrum of aromas and flavours. Refreshing acidity and robust tannin are bedded in a juicy texture making this a perfect bottle to unscrew for a barbecue. The Zweigelt Sonnhof is the ideal company with meat dishes especially with venison.

The grapes were harvested at the beginning of October and carefully picked by hand, and pressed at extremely low pressure. The juice flows naturally down from the 4 storey pressing house without the use of pumps, into the underground cellar below.

Honestly, Zweigelt is rather an “issue” in Austria. It grows everywhere, often in copious quantities, which leads to the unfortunate conclusion that it is universally well suited. If you really want to make superb Zweigelt, you´ve literally got your work “cut out”. The variety is vigorous and you´ve got to ensure that yields don´t explode. If meagre soils and cool expositions are chosen for this grape, the quality ca be stunning. We strive to consider all of these components and allow enough time in the cellar for the wine to find its perfect balance in large casks and used wooden barrels.

A special aspect of a family-run business is, that you don’t think in yearly revenues, but rather in generations. This applies all the more to viticulture, because the quality of the wines of your children and grand-children will depend on how close to nature (meaning, close to a natural ecosystem/environment) you deal with your vineyards today. This is the creed of the Jurtschitsch family. The fact that family members from three generations are actively at work in the estate clearly shows the co-operation within the family and their future-oriented philosophy in wine-making.

Vacqueyras Cuvée Azalais 2012
Vacqueyras Cuve Azalais 2012
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.


Les Terrasses Merlot/Syrah
Les Terrasses Merlot/Syrah
Deep coloured with a bouquet of ripe cherry fruit, this is a very approachable wine with the emphasis on ripeness and "crunchy" fruit with excellent balance.
