Blauer Zweigelt Alte Reben 2012

Current Wines | Wines from 2012


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. With 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 likeable, 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 ones, the old vinyards yield less but their grapes are much riper, more concentrated and show richer flavours. The resulting wine is therefore dark coloured, strong and always right for hearty food or for romantic hours.

Tasting notes

This Blauer Zweigelt is dark red with a brightly violet edge.. Its flavour impresses with notable hints of cherry and dark fruits. The tannints are pronounced but Zweigelt-like mild.

Food suggestion

This wine goes perfeclty with game and many other hearty meat dishes.

Ageing potential

Reaches its optimum two years after the harvest. Can be kept at least for over five years.
