⭐️85/100⭐️ Matthias Warnung Basis Zweigelt, 2016 📍Kamptal, Niederösterreich, Austria🇦🇹 🍇 100% Zweigelt ⚡️11,5 % Tasted: August 2020 Matthias Warnung farms approximately 10 hectares of vines in the region of Kamptal in Austria - northwest from Vienna.
His vineyards consists of mainly old and well adapted vines of Grüner Veltliner, Riesling and Zweigelt, but he also hides a bit of some Chardonnay and Muller-Thurgau in his pockets.
He took over the operation of the winery from his father in 2010, after spending time working with various other winemakers, most notably the famed South African natural winemaker behind Testalonga, Craig Hawkins.
He’s focusing on natural harvesting, and ferments all the wines spontaneously with little to no sulfur added. This wine is made from 15 to 30 years old vines from three younger vineyards. Fermentation with whole bunches with semi carbonic fermentation in 60 years old 3500-liter barrels with two weeks of maceration. It’s pressed off the skins into fiberglass tanks for two years of elevage on the lees before bottling unfined and unfiltered.
4.700 bottles were made. Super interesting bouquet with a backbone of fresh raspberry and strawberry followed by green herbs, liquorice, tar, horse stable, wet slate, pepper and fresh moss. A perfumed scent of rose petals and lavender ends the nose with a lovely hint of yeast. The palate is light and it’s got a nice prickling acidity with fresh red berries, rhubarb, herbs and pepper.
