Viticulture tradition has been a top priority in Groß-Reipersdorf bei Pulkau since 1858. For Simone & Hannes, being a winemaker means capturing the fascination of nature, being sensitive to how the year is developing and bringing the best qualities that nature allows into the cellar. Pulkau fascinates with soils from Maissau granite to fine-grain loess soils on the foothills of the Manhartsberg. These conditions are the origin of their red wine affinity in the white wine-dominated Weinviertel, where they follow their tradition and rely on Zweigelt and St. Laurent. The future of Simone Hiller-Jordan is wine and so she took over the winery with great joy in 2010 and has been running it with enthusiasm and passion ever since.

Winemaking

42 is the answer to the question of the meaning of life, at least in the book The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. For the winemakers at Jordan, 42 is the answer to the question of the perfect maturation period for a galactic Zweigelt. These 42 months in French oak barrels provide power, complexity, body and structure. A wine for special moments, best enjoyed well decanted.

Tasting notes

Strong ruby, violet reflections, fine wood spice, a little nougat, delicate hints of heart cherries, dark forest berry jam; extremely juicy, elegant tannin structure through to the finish! Simply great cinema!

Recommended serving temperature: 16°C

Food pairing

The Zweigelt 42 lives on its own – the only thing it really needs is a cosy spot and the time you allow yourself and your loved ones! Have fun with this extraordinary palate cinema!
