Blauer Zweigelt Alte Reben 2009

Current Wines | Wines from 2009


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 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 Blauer Zweigelt - Alte Reben (old grapevines) is made from the oldest vines of our winery. When compared to youner vines, the old vinyards yield much less but their grapes are much riper, more concentrated and show much richer flavours. Their wine is therefore dark coloured, strong and always right for hearty food or for romantic hours.
