An ultra-fun blend of zweigelt and pinot noir from a young couple in Austria's Kamptal, with purple fruit, and flowers, a pantry full of herbs and spices, and a crisp, juicy palate.

Kamptal, Austria

Anna and Martin Arndorfer both come from winemaking families, and while they respect their families' traditions, they are busily expanding the possibilities of what Kamptal wine can be. They take a clean but natural approach in the vineyard and cellar, and whatever unusual experiments they take on with the local grapes, they always manage to stick the landing and produce vibrant, exciting, and delicious wines. This one is zweigelt with a hefty splash of pinot noir, fermented with wild yeasts and some whole clusters,  then aged for around 10 months in big old wood before bottling with minimal added sulfur. The result is a lightish but intensely flavourful wine that's a joy to drink, with sour cherry, peppery spice, green herbs, and a touch of woodsy funk.
