Description

Hofkellerei Profundo Zweigelt 2017

Profundo has always been one of the Hofkellerei’s showpieces. The Austrian variety is impressive for its cherry fruit, juiciness and liveliness on the palate – here in Profundo coupled with élevage and maturing in French barriques.

The wines of the Reserve stem from older vines, grown in the deep loess soils of the single vineyards Karls- and Johannesberg, owned by the family for more than 600 years. They let you experience their origin, terroir, authenticity, precision and high value.

​Noble, dark ruby garnet with an opaque core, dark & ripe fruit, black cherries and blackberries, cassis with a lively bit of pepper; juicy & chocolatey, powerful with nicely balanced tannins in the finish.

Gentle vinification in wooden fermenters with a long period of maceration. Maturing for two years in selected French barriques in the centuries-old vaulted cellar of the Hofkellerei.
