For the first time, the Salzl Pannoterra 2019 contains a proportion of Cabernet Franc, the best red grape variety in the portfolio according to the Salzl family. As usual, the other varieties are Zweigelt, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon from the vineyards (AT=Rieden) Lüss, Martenhof and Sandriegel in Illmitz on the eastern shore of Lake Neusiedl.
The scent of the Salzl Pannoterra 2019 is reminiscent of dark berries, cocoa, pepper and vanilla notes from the barrique. The taste is voluminous, more structured than previous vintages, the ripe tannins are more present, the wine is powerful on the palate, has finesse and power, with the best balance. The long-lasting finale is always accompanied by freshness, the 14.5% alcohol is well integrated.
The Salzl winery is very happy with the 2019 vintage. The wines have a very high level of all components and are therefore in perfect balance for long storage. The Pannoterra 2019 will probably be more durable than its predecessors.
Falstaff magazine rated the 2019 Pannoterra with 93/100. Taster Peter Moser mentions notes of wild berries, liquorice and the delicate wood spice. On the palate he notices the well-integrated tannins and the length of the wine.
