Zweigelt – a crossing of Saint-Laurent with Blaufrankisch, created in 1922 – is the most widely planted red-wine grape in Austria. A highly popular variety, it is grown in every Austrian wine region, with the finest examples coming from Burgenland, particularly the Neusiedlersee. A classic Austrian Zweigelt is richly colored with a deep, bright core of spiced cherry and raspberry flavors. The finest examples have the potential to cellar well for a decade or so, but the majority are best consumed within a few years of release.
