Modestly sour, with some sweetness, and a bit of smoke and vegetal flavors, plus a dash of iron. Medium bodied and fairly mild. Enjoyable and well worth the $9 I spent for a liter.
I came across a wine word the other day that I will use to describe this: quaffable. Yes, this is a quaffable wine. It is light and fruity, with a pleasant dash of sourness. It doesn't have much body to it, but it does go down easy. It is a good party wine (which is where I had it, at a party) because most people will like it and it won't distract people from their conversations.
Four and a half glasses
External Reviews for Zweigelt Dürnberg Falkensteiner Rieden
Deliciously fruity and quaffable, this liter bottle is perfect for parties. This red wine is full of soft and approachable black fruits, with subtle tannins and a hint of zesty minerality on the finish.
