Natalie's Score: 87/100

A juicy, fruit, easy-drinking red wine from Austria made from the country's leading red grape, Zweigelt. This grape ripens early in the season which is essential to thriving in the country's cool sub-alpine climate. Aromas of tart cherry and smoke. Pair with poultry and game dishes.

Zweigelt food pairings: veal stew with root vegetables, roast spatchcock chicken, grilled pork sausages.

Reviews and Ratings

From the Niederösterreich in Austria, Forstreiter Exclusive 2015 is a Zweigelt Qualitätswein, deep and dark ruby in the glass with dark cherry, blueberry and dark plum flavours on the palate. Silky and smooth and easy to enjoy now with a vegetarian pizza. Zweigelt is Austria's most widely planted red wine grape variety, ripens early and is the perfect red wine grape to suit Austria's cool sub-alpine climate. Drink now and for the next three years. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
