100% Zweigelt. Certified organic and Demeter bio-dynamic. Johannes uses Demeter treatments 500 (horn manure), 501 (horn kiesel mountain crystal) and 507 (herbs and valerian to help with frost and vine relaxation). A small group of local winemakers co-produce the fermented manure 30km from the vineyard. 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. Unfined, unfiltered.
Fresh cherries and red berries, juicy and spicy, perfect length. A great representation of cold climate Zweigelt, without oak influence
"Velue" is the old name for Velm-Goetzendorf, the name of the old willow trees, which grow near the river. The Velue wines are nature-based and fermented spontaneously inside stainless steel tanks. The Velue Zweigelt is originated from the area "Haidthal" and "Sonnberg". Both areas are windy and chilly. That gives you the advantage of late harvesting, thus the wine is physiological, ripe and has a moderate alcohol concentration. The Zweigelt has a subtle aroma, which perfectly fits this type of wine. The grapes are harvested by hand and carefully selected.
