Juris Zweigelt 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Zweigelt was developed in the early 1920's by Fritz Zweigelt. The grape is essentially the crossing of St. Laurent and Blaufränkisch. As such you get the spice, structure and dark blue fruit from the Blaufränkisch and the nimble Pinot Noir-like elegance of St. Laurent. Given the acidity, light weight, and smokey aromatics, pair this wine with earthy dishes, hard cheeses, roast duck and other dark poultry, mushrooms, and anything covered in spice and herbs with a hint of fruit to be coaxed out. The fine grained tannins also make it a great glass on its own.

The JURIS Winery is located in the historic center of Gols. The Stiegelmar family has been cultivating grapes in this wine area for generations. The earliest records of the Stiegelmar winery are documented in a family prayer book and dated 1571. Today the JURIS vineyards are located in the best locations of the Gols district. Georg Stiegelmar began with the production of high quality noble sweet wines parallel to his takeover of the family winery in 1965. As time passed the significance of red wine, production grew and now makes up 80% of the total wines. White wines and sweet wines receive equal care and attention although they make up only 20% of production. The vineyards include all of Austria’s most important red wine varieties, but special focus is given the grapes of the Burgundy family, St. Laurent and Pinot Noir. The classic varieties Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc play the main role for the white wines. Read less

Soft and slightly funky on the nose with notes of something vaguely recalling boiled pig skin lying under beautiful candied medicinal and violet tones. There’s some dried mushroom here as well, a nice base of juniper-laced blackberries. Broad and soft on entry, this is really open for business texturally with finely polished fruit tannins and juicy acidity in fine balance with the earth, red berry, plum and cherry fruit. Neither terribly complex nor deep, this is almost luxurious and shows surprising persistence and density on the long finish. 88pts
