Blauer Zweigelt Alte Reben 2004

Current Wines | Wines from 2004


A bottle of Blauer Zweigelt Alte Reben

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.

Tasting notes

Our Blauer Zweigelt 2004 has the typical dark red colour with violet refelctions on the edge. Its intense flavour impresses with strong tones of cherry and dark fruit. The tannin structure ist pronounced but pleasantly mild.
