"Ripe, cinnamon-tinged blueberry fruit streams from the glass. The palate reiterates and reinforces that berry-spice combination, giving us a lusciously ripe but very agile wine. The cinnamon note lingers."
"Light, bright, simple black cherry. Nicely balanced in a lighter style with a fresh and juicy fruit profile. (RH)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
Wagram is an Austrian wine region located just to the northwest of Vienna. The 2900 hectare district extends down the Danube River from Krems to Klosterneuburg. Situated on a long ridge overlooking the Danubian plain, the soils of Wagram are characterized by being particularly rich in loess, making the area especially favorable for Zweigelt.
Paula and Hans Diwald pioneered their winery’s conversion to completely organic viticulture during a time when chemicals and additives were prominent in winemaking. In 1980, the Diwalds converted their 4 hectare farm into a vineyard. After some trial and error with chemical fertilizers, the two made the decision to farm organically in order to improve the quality of their fruit. Today Martin Diwald leads the second generation of the family’s commitment to producing wine that reflects Wagram’s environment, resources, and land. Being an organic winery is central to their vision, believing that wine made this way will show authenticity and honesty. They take their status as pioneers of Austrian organic wine production seriously, believing that being pioneers also means never resting in their quest for oneness with nature.
