With its moderate acidity and soft tannins the Zweigelt pairs perfectly with Austria's traditional spaetzle and schnitzel dishes. Its thirst-quenching quality makes it the ideal companion to beef stew or barbecue-grilled chicken.
The Zweigelt sprouts early and reaches its best maturity after a medium-long ripening period. Under ideal weather conditions it tends to produce relatively high yields. Intensive foliage work and quantity control are important to ensure the highest quality. There is a danger of downy mildew, shrivelled berries and grape wilt. When matured in its pure variety, Zweigelt produces a colourful, full-fruity, charming and harmonious wine, which we let mature for a short time in large wooden barrels.
The Zweigelt, a cross between St. Laurent and Blaufränkisch, is a new Austrian breed from 1922 by Professor Friedrich Zweigelt (scientist). In Austria the Zweigelt is grown on 6500 hectares of vineyards.
