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 typical purple rim. In the nose it impresses with inviting fruit and beautiful cherry aromas.The tannin structure is full-bodied, elegant and yet Zweigelttypical soft.

Food suggestion

This wine is excellent with pasta as well as with hearty meatdishes.

Ageing potential

Reaches its optimum 2 years after the harvest. Can be kept for atleast 5 to 7 years.
