Description

Weinhof Waldschütz was established by the family in 1849. Originally grape farmers in a love affair with the vine, the family moved into winemaking in 1912 and have built a history of tradition and experience at their winery. In 1992, Anton Waldschütz married Elfriede from a neighbouring winery in Wagram and the two wineries came together, showcasing the finest wines from both Kamptal and Wagram. Today their 18 hectares of vines are overseen by 6th generation Ralph Waldschütz, a charming and endlessly enthusiastic winemaker. The terroir Schafberg, with its deep loess soils, offers the best conditions for a distinc-tive Blauer Zweigelt of the area Wagram. The special southeast-facing slope allows for a maximal heat-ing during the day, while the cool air of the wood quarter enables a quick cooling during night-time. This combination benefits the development of aromas in the grapes.

TASTING NOTES

Rich in nuances, this wine convinces with its delicate violet hues and its red rims. On the palate, the taster notices
the lingering long finish. As regards taste, the Zweigelt Fels am Wagram reminds one of ripe berries and cherries. It is also possible to spot a refreshing taste of sour cherries. This sophisticated wine convinces with its mellow tannins, which are soft due to steel tank maturation.
