Description

The "Naturschönheit" or natural beauty 2017 is a natural wine from Zweigelt and St. Laurent. In the nose a deep, dark fruit with spice and terroir. On the palate, black cherries, burgundy spicy, nevertheless soft and elegant. Playful, honest, not only "beautiful" - even enchanting, not "pretty" - but sensual!

Not only the wine, the label comes from the vineyard: The color of the primer comes from the grapes directly, the words "Natursschönheit" was composed of vine tendrils. Even the color for the "natural beauty" insects was obtained from the vineyard. And then Karin Weinhandl carved vineyard insect stamps and stamped the animals with the wood color on the paper. All this has united her in a wonderful collage into a whole.
