Staying in the Burgenland district of Austria, see previous post on Heinrich’s Blaufrankish, this 2008 100% Zweigelt by Zantho is a great complementary wine to the former. Not as full as the Heinrich offering, it brings some very pleasant spice to the table. Like the famous apple strudels of Austria, cinnamon is part of the charm of this wine. The colour which is deep dark and inviting doesn’t reveal its flavours that quickly – so you can’t easily pull out definite fruit components and mull over the tastes. This is definitely a wine I will be revisiting.
Musical Match: Edie Brickell and “What I am.” Intelligent, intoxicating and indelible this song asked all the right questions. It is instantly memorable without necessarily being catchy, mature without being complex and playful without being gimmicky. Good Stuff.
