Since my trip to Vienna, I wasn’t able to find this producer and was pretty bummed, especially since Austrian wines are all the rage but the selection isn’t that diverse. It seems like the same 4 producers are carried everywhere. At Cafe Sabarsky, I saw they carried half bottles and I went for it. It was almost exactly the same scenario as in Vienna: drink Nittnaus then go upstairs to see an installation of Egon Schiele. Intense, and brilliant. You might see a previous post referring to the Blaufrankisch I had that time, and I think I still prefer it to the Zweigelt, but this was still one of the best I’ve had of its kind. Vigorous, compact fruit, clove-y and very persistent.
