Origin

Neusiedlersee is highly regarded for the production of Zweigelt grapes. A stone’s throw away from Hungary, breezes provide warmth from the hot Pannonian Plain to the east; this warming influence allows varieties such as Zweigelt to thrive, producing bright, intense and fruity wines. Vineyards are found in Apetlon, the lowest spot in Austria, with dark “Tschernosem” soil and gravelly deposits.

Producer

This historic family estate can be traced all the way back to the 12th century; vineyards and cellar facilities then owned at a Benedictine Abbey were administrated by a man named Moser – a certified ancestor. In more recent times, the name is perhaps more famously associated with Dr. Lenz Moser, a renowned viticulturist who developed the high training system for vines in the 1950s. Sepp Moser founded the modern-day estate in 1987 and having passed on responsibility to his son, Nikolaus, continues a long family legacy.

Grape Variety

100% Zweigelt.

Vineyards are farmed organically and biodynamically with grapes harvested by hand. Fermented in stainless steel tanks and bottled early to preserve freshness.

Food Match

Try with veal or fish, as well as pizza and pasta with tomato based sauces. Also very pleasant drunk on its own slightly chilled.

    fantastic colour, deep and vibrant while its fruity and perfumed nose is a mix of blackberries and red cherries. The palate again shows plump cherry flavours and the hint of spice that is typical of the Zweigelt grape.
