Fine and elegant type of Zweigelt

Herbal spice and delicate plum aroma
            [Notes2] => Located in the Kremstal region, the Malat Estate sits on the hillside of Gottweiger Berg where the vineyards benefit from a microclimate regulated by the Danube River, with hot days and cool nights. The soil composition is loess, gravel and primary rock. The Zweigelt comes from 30 year old vines around the village of Palt on a soil composition of lime rich loess, clay and Danube gravel. The farming is organic and the grapes are harvested by hand.
            [Notes3] => 
            [Notes4] => An off-dry Riesling. Fresh and herbal aromas in combination with animating Riesling-fruit. Racy on the palate, piquant but light, with juicy sweetness;  perfectly balanced with mineral notes.

A highly popular variety, it is grown in every Austrian wine region, with the finest examples coming from Burgenland, particularly the Neusiedlersee. A classic Austrian Zweigelt is richly colored with a deep, bright core of spiced cherry and raspberry flavors. The finest examples have the potential to cellar well for a decade or so, but the majority are bes

Winemaker Michael Malat, believes in the natural purity of wine, thereby not changing the profile of the grape. He uses no irrigation, planting his vines intensively, minerality coming from the terroir. He uses no Botrytis, and if present he will take it out. Natural fermentation needs cloudiness, nutrients and yeasts; you can’t do this with botrytis. An abundance of small tanks in the winery, allow all blocks to be fermented separately. Michael reckons Pinot Noir, Riesling and Chardonnay are the varietal that will thrive in future years, climate change being an important factor

"Gerald Malat is without doubt one of the best-known winemaking personalities in the country, not least of course due to the outstanding qualities of his wines. His son, Michael Malat, now manages the business. The Malats understand how to play the entire repertoire to perfection - all the way through from light white wines to the elegant red wines. Austria`s first sparkling wines, Malat Brut and Malat Brut Rosé, have been made at the winery by the traditional method since 1976. Perfection continues to be the guiding principle of the Malat winery - and has been for many generations."

About this product +

Producer >

Dating from 1722, with vineyards in the regions of Kremstal and Wachau.Winemaker Michael Malat, believes in the natural purity of wine, thereby not changing the profile of the grape. He uses no irrigation, planting his vines intensively, minerality coming from the terroir. He uses no Botrytis, and if present he will take it out. Natural fermentation needs cloudiness, nutrients and yeasts; you can’t do this with botrytis. An abundance of small tanks in the winery, allow all blocks to be fermented separately. Michael reckons Pinot Noir, Riesling and Chardonnay are the varietal that will thrive in future years, climate change being an important factor.

Viticulture >

Located in the Kremstal region, the Malat Estate sits on the hillside of Gottweiger Berg where the vineyards benefit from a microclimate regulated by the Danube River, with hot days and cool nights. The soil composition is loess, gravel and primary rock. The Zweigelt comes from 30 year old vines around the village of Palt on a soil composition of lime rich loess, clay and Danube gravel. The farming is organic and the grapes are harvested by hand.
