Plus free shipping on 3+ bottles. This is deep, dark, yet somehow light-on-its-feet classic Austrian red!
Together with her husband Hannes, Simone Hiller-Jordan forms the duo that has led the traditional family winery Jordan (started in 1858!) into the next generation since 2010. From 2007 on, Simone was still the regional wine queen of Lower Austria, a year later even the wine queen of all of Austria. She then completed her oenology studies and has been causing a stir in the Weinviertel ever since. Simone Jordan is responsible for winemaking, along with her parents Karl and Anni Jordan, and a passion, love and avid fascination are top priority. It is no longer uncommon for a woman to run her own wine estate in what is regarded as a male dominated branch.
The color! That’s what hits you first. The wine is ruby red, but also shows garnet-red and purple reflections with a slight lightening towards the edge. The aromatics are intense -- a wide range from sour cherries, raspberries and blackberries to blood orange zest, licorice and dark roasted aromas. On the palate, the Zweigelt is juicy and full of dark fruit, melting tannins, notes of mocha and chocolate as well as a distinctive but excellently integrated wood spice on the finish.
If you’ve never experienced Austrian reds, we must strongly urge you to try THIS one. We love the Hiller wines, and are one of the few places on earth to get them! While it lasts!
