Zweigelt is the most widely planted red variety in Austria. It was created by Dr Zweigelt in 1922 by crossing Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent (two other typical Austrian varieties) grapes. Zweigelt is great every day red. Lighter bodied, juicy with a peppery finish.

Tasting Notes

Colour: Dark ruby red with tinges of purple.
Nose: Red berries with a touch of vanilla.
Palate: Long elegant finish with toasty aromatic notes.
Food pairing: A great every day red. Simply fantastic with barbequed food but happy with pizza, pasta and a touch of spice!
