Blauer Zweigelt 2002

Current Wines | Wines from 2002


A bottle of Blauer Zweigelt

The Zweigelt is the star among the Austrian red wine varieties. The reason for this is the great versatility of this notable variety. Under skillful treatment the Zweigelt can yield fruity and velvety as well as heavy and full red wines with a sturdy tannin structure. Good Zweigelt wines can easily be compared to renowned international varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon. Yet the character of a Zweigelt always remains likable, easy drinkable and charming to the palate. The stronger of our Zweigelt variants is named Blauer Zweigelt. It is mainly developed in classical Austrian style in big oak barrels, dark coloured, strong and therefore a wine for hearty food or for romantic hours.
