STORY BEHIND THIS WINE
The Türk winery is located west of Vienna in the idyllic wine village of Stratzing in Kremstal. The roots of the renowned family business go back to the beginning of the 18th century. They own 17ha of quality vineyards, several of which are erste lage or premier cru with about 75% planted with Grüner Veltliner. Winemaker Franz Türk’s philosophy is to draw on centuries of accumulated family knowledge but also to try something new. His focus is on producing wines with character and finesse, that reflect their terroir, built for the long term, not a sprint or to have flashy fruitiness in youth. The often internationally awarded sweet wines are a special insider tip. Read more.
Weingut Türk don’t make a lot of red wine but you can bet it’s good when they do, small but perfectly formed, you might say. Zweigelt in a good year, like 2019, always shows attractive juicy blackberry and cherry fruit but the better ones, like this one, have an extra dimension of spice and herbal notes, in this case including laurel, juniper and tobacco with a sour cherry fresh acidity on the finish.
