Never heard of Blauer Zweigelt? It’s an Austrian variety that’s definitely worth knowing, producing “rich, cherry fruited wines with an attractive pepper tingle” (Oz Clarke). From the heart of premium Kremstal, this is a unique ripe and silky red.
"Stronger and fuller than expected. Very enjoyable. A learning experience to taste an Austrian wine"
Online Review For the 2014 vintage
Austria makes some delicious, superbly balanced, finely honed wines – both white and red – yet we rarely see them in the UK. That’s why Blauer Zweigelt, the nation’s most widely planted red grape, is not better known. A crossing of two other Austrian varieties created by Dr Fritz Zweigelt in 1922, it’s well suited to cool climates and produces elegant, silky, fruit reds. This classic 2015 is from a small cellar founded in 1938 by members of the local Wine Growers Guild in Krems, a town with eight centuries of winemaking tradition. Krems is at the heart of the Kremstal region, where clay and limestone soils bring out the juicy fruit and minerally freshness of Blauer Zweigelt. Enjoy with white meats, creamy vegetarian dishes or a rice pilaf.
