Zweigelt 2008

Current Wines | Wines from 2008


A bottle of 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 great 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 too drink and charming on the palate. The lighter of our Zweigelt variants is simply named “Zweigelt”. It is developed in classical Austrian style in big oak barrels, not too heavy and therefore an ideal everyday wine.

Tasting notes

Our Zweigelt 2008 shimmers dark purple red in its glass. The bouquet is reminiscent of cherries and dark fruits.The wine is very palatable and pleasingly smooth on the palate.

Food suggestion

Zweigelt can be matched to lots of meat and noodle dishes. It can be enjoyed in quiet moments or just if one feels the desire to.

Ageing potential

Reaches its optimum about one year after the harvest. Can be kept at least for about three years.
