Little Red Riding Hood strayed from the path and she survived to tell the tale, so it’s worth venturing into the dark woods once in a while. She may not choose to repeat the experience, but we think you will be keen to after you try a bottle of this Zweigelt from Austria’s south east corner. It delivers a hatful of perfumed sour cherry, blueberry, dark plum and peppery spice on the nose with an added lift of something sappy and herbal/crunchy. It’s like a cross between a red Burgundy, a Cabernet Franc from the Loire and a ‘hipster’ Sangiovese from Tuscany. The palate delivers a sweet and sour thrill of redcurrants and raspberries, a hint of pepper and violets and a generally fruity exuberance with a soft caress of tannins making it perfectly suited to serving chilled. Vibrant, fruit joy with a deliciously different twist. Biodynamic. 13% alc. Drink now - 2020.
