Helenental Kellerei Feschak Zweigelt, 2017, Weinviertel, Austria
£17.40 (inc VAT)
Feschak translates to a dapper gentleman with cultivated pleasant manners. It's not a coincidence that this charming Zweigelt is made by two dapper gents who hail from the Weinwiertel region. After returning from the hustle and bustle of Vienna, Manfred and Walther wanted to return to the Retzerland, their families' ancestral home. Backed with the blazing passion of this wine region (and a hefty dose of experience in finance), we couldn't have thought of a better dream team.
Hellenthal Kellerei is owned by two friends from two different walks of life. Manfred is one of the most renowned and successful winemakers in the Weinviertel region, who knows this region like the back of his hand. Whereas Walther, gave up his financial job in the city to manage the family estate's finances. Walther fell in love with the vast and quiet Weinviertel and so he and his family have moved back there. A winemaker who knows the terroir of the Retzerland and knows how to handle the Veltliner. A financial expert who takes care of it's future, but is too, a lover of wine. With this team, not much can go wrong.
