Blauer Zweigelt Alte Reben 2017

Current Wines | Wines from 2017


A bottle of Blauer Zweigelt Alte Reben

Zweigelt is an indigenous Austrian grape and probably the most important of all our red wine varieties nowadays. Decades ago our family was among the first who planted these then new vines in Gols, today’s Zweigelt capital of the world. This allows us not only to look back on many great vintages but also gave us lots of experience with this fine grape that we’re very fond of.

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 darkly coloured, strong and always right for hearty food or for romantic hours.

Tasting notes

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

Food suggestion

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

Ageing potential

Reaches its optimum 2 years after the harvest. Can be kept for more than 5 years at least.
