Sepp Moser, Classic Style Zweigelt
Fruity and perfumed nose showing blackberries, white pepper, and spice. Bright sappy palate with fresh acidity, crunchy redcurrant and raspberry fruit, and layers of spice, liquorice, and herbs. The must was then fermented and given a brief period of ageing in stainless steel before being bottled in February.
Ideal with veal or fish, as well as pizza and pasta with tomato-based sauces. Also, very pleasant drunk on its own slightly chilled.
Meet the ProducerThe Vitikultur Moser estate was originally founded by the famous Austrian wine producing pioneer, Lenz Moser. Lenz Moser's son, Sepp Moser, began operating under his own name in 1987. This family estate comprises of 50 acres of vineyards in two prominent wine regions: Kremstal and Neusiedlersee. In the Kremstal, Nikolaus produces an international range of varieties as well as the ever more important local varieties of Gruner Veltliner and Riesling. The reds are produced on the gravelly soils of the warm southern Neusiederslee village of Apetlon. All Vitikultur Moser wines have been organic (and all estate wines biodynamic) since 2007. Vitikultur Moser harvest their grapes by hand and emphasise a 'gentle' vinification in the cellar with spontaneous fermentation -minimum intervention in the winemaking process encourages each wine to develop its own individual style.In 2006 Nikolaus Moser officially moved the estate to biodynamic viticulture – one of the first to do so in Austria – and became Demeter certified. 2009 saw the release of the estate’s first certified organic wines. Nikolaus is very keen to reduce the amount of copper and sulphur used in the vineyards, and this year saw a reduction of two thirds over what was sprayed previously.
