Blauer Zweigelt Alte Reben 2020

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.

NEUSIEDLERSEE DAC RESERVE stands for a Zweigelt that has grown here but is at home all over the world. Soil, climate and experience in vinification combine in an exemplary manner to form an impressive example of its kind: typical and powerful, an essence of nature and wine culture on Lake Neusiedl.
