The Waldschütz family began working in the wine business in 1849, originally as grape farmers in the Kamptal region, before beginning production of their own wines in 1912. Today the father and son team of Anton and Ralph - the 5th and 6th generation of the family respectively to run the company - create a wide range of wines with particular care and respect for their terroir. This cuvée was fermented in stainless steel tanks to preserve the primary fruit characteristics of the wine, bringing out flavours of violets, sour cherry, and cinnamon. The cool climate of Fels Am Wagram also causes a slower ripening of the Zweigelt grapes, lending balanced acidity and preserving freshness.
This is a rather versatile wine, and can be paired with veal or venison dishes or soft cheeses such as goats cheese.
