Danaris Blauer Zweigelt 2018

Niederösterreich

Never heard of Blauer Zweigelt? It’s an Austrian variety that’s definitely worth knowing, producing “cherry fruited wines with an attractive pepper tingle” (Oz Clarke). From the heart of premium Kremstal, this is a delicate, ripe and silky red.

Austria makes some really outstanding wines – beautifully balanced, elegant reds and mineral zipped whites – yet we rarely see them in the UK. That’s why Blauer Zweigelt, the nation’s most widely planted red grape, isn’t 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 silky fruit reds. This classic 2018 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, meatier fish or a rice pilaf.
