2015 Sepp Zweigelt, Weingut Sepp Moser, Neusiedlersee, Austria

This historic family estate can be traced all the way back to the 12th century; vineyards and cellar facilities then owned by 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.
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 and this warming influence allows varieties such as Zweigelt to thrive, producing bright, intense and fruity wines.
Vineyards are farmed organically and biodynamically with grapes harvested by hand.
