Thomas Stopfer Zweigelt 1L Niederösterreich, Austria 2018Regular price $12.00
Named after the scientist responsible for its cross-breeding, the Zweigelt grape is medium-bodied, agile on the palate, and full of savory aromas. Stopher’s wine doesn’t see any oak and so is meant to be enjoyed young and fresh (and maybe with a few friends to share the liter bottle).
We get lovely floral notes of violet and red fruit on the nose, as well as some black pepper spices. Sour cherries, earthy minerality, black pepper notes and just the right amount of acidity make this a versatile food wine.
Food Ideas: smoked chicken, fried brussel sprouts with sofrito, pastrami sandwiches, baba ganoush and falafel
