I had a glass of the 2005 Sattler Zweigelt at one of my favorite restaurants, Al Di La, last night. I had never even heard of this grape prior to then, but the waiter recommended it with my duck, so I gave it a shot.
It was a very nice wine, deceptively dark purple hue, but medium-bodied and somewhat reminiscent of a beaujolais, with a nicely balanced plum and peach notes, flowers and spice. Highly recommended.
It's an Austrian wine, imported by Michael Skurnik. None of my usual stores seem to carry it and I don't want to order a full case (no room for it!). Anyone have any idea where I can buy a bottle in the New York area?
