Johannes Zillinger Velue Zweigelt 2016 (750ml)

Organic / Biodynamic / Natural

This 100% Zweigelt is certified organic and Demeter bio-dynamic. Needless to say, all grapes are manually harvested. Fermented in stainless steel, slow and gentle pressing, stored in big, old barrels of oak and small, used barrels of acacia. The wine is unfined and unfiltered. The wine displays fresh cherries and red berries, juicy and spicy, with perfect length. A great representation of cold climate Zweigelt, without oak influence.

Johannes Zillinger learned early on from his father about the craft of organic winemaking, about viewing the vineyard as a habitat and protecting the environment instead of poisoning it. His father Hans turned to organic viticulture in 1983 and was one of its pioneers in Austria. When Johannes took over the winery and made it his own in 2013, he took it ever further and became biodynamic, starting a new chapter for the 350 year old winery. His wines are certified Demeter biodynamic.

Johannes is all about the philosophy of biodynamic farming. He even grows his own herbs for tea tinctures to use as treatments in his vineyards. The wines are all spontaneously fermented, lightly filtered, and minimally sulfured only at bottling keeping with the purity so desired. The difference with these wines are their approachability to the entire consumer base. Everyone can appreciate the cleanliness, flavor, and precision of this juice regardless of their interest in organic or natural wines.
