Zweigelt

Zweigelt was developed by Fritz Zweigelt, director of the Klosterneuburg institute in Austria, by blending Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent varieties.

  • It is rich in colouring substances,
  • It has a harmonious, pleasantly sour character.
  • It is a full-bodied wine which, however, rarely reaches the quality of the Blue Franc.

In adequate yields Zweigelt has good acids, but it is less suitable for long maturing. We recommend that the cellars storing this variety are carefully chosen.
