Zweigelt-St Laurent ‘Oibelos’, Soellner

£12.99

This marriage of two classic Austrian red varieties is a happy one. These grapes combine lightness, earthy characters and good acidity. This produces a versatile and very accessible smooth red that’s medium-bodied, stylish and well-poised. A touch smoky, there are flavours of dark berries and black cherrries – maturation in small and large oak barrels for around 18 months adds depth and warmth to its ripe fruit.

Toni Soellner’s were the wines which stood out. He began growing grapes in 1989 and was joined by Daniela when they married in Biodynamic methods are used on 6 terraced sites.

Description

Zweigelt-St Laurent ‘Oibelos’, Soellner

This marriage of two classic Austrian red varieties is a happy one. St Laurent is actually French in origin being a close relative of Pinot Noir and these grapes combine lightness, earthy characters and good acidity. This produces a versatile and very accessible smooth red that’s medium-bodied, stylish and well-poised. A touch smoky, there are flavours of dark berries and black cherrries – maturation in small and large oak barrels for around 18 months adds depth and warmth to its ripe fruit.
