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 grape. 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 to 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 younger vines, the old vinyards yield less but their grapes are much riper, more concentrated and show richer flavours. Their wine is therefore dark coloured, strong and always right for hearty food or for romantic hours.

Made from organic grapes. AT-BIO-402
