"Zuper Wine" 2020 Bezu20
A Zweigelt from Zürich, too many "Z" to miss it. A nice aging in french oak barrels, a wine cultivated with the Demeter label approach and a five star+ couple of winemakers, this wine has it all, hence its name !

Aging: Oak barrel (12 months)

Since we are talking about a Zuper Wine, it will be great for any occasion. It will save your ass many times but it should give its best with red meat. Must try.

They met at school! I mean Changins (Winemaking school) but still. A great history for great wines, with a lot to say. They are the first (and only) wine estate part of the Biodyvin & Demeter Labels. They are well known outside Switzerland (including by world class sommeliers) and they are really engaged in the promotion of very local grapes. How could you not love them ?
The Swiss German vineyard is the 3rd biggest swiss wine region. It groups 16 provinces including Zürich, the biggest one (same size as Neuchâtel). Zürich is mainly known for the Pinot Noir and the Müller-Thurgau (Riesling Sylvaner) like the entire region but also for indigenous grapes like Zweigelt or Räuschling. Last but not least, Zürich is also known for having a lot of organic wines.
