Blauer Zweigelt Alte Reben 2009

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.

Eye-catching and typical for the region like the Lapwing.

Northern Lapwings are quite common in our region. In summer they can be seen flying acrobatically over the vineyards and their cries can be heard from the distance. Here around Lake Neusiedl they find a favourable habitat with shallow warm waters and embankments. And in between lie the the vineyards that profit from the conditions just as much, that enable them to grow great wines.
