Blauer Zweigelt

 

 
Synonyms:  
 

Rotburger (AT), Zweigeltrebe (CZ, SK) 

 
Origin:  
 

The creation of the Zweigelt variety in the 1920's by Professor Fritz Zweigelt, a crossing between Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent, only really gained recognition after the Second World War. 

 
Spreading:  
 
Nowadays, it is the most widespread red wine variety in Austria, and can be found in suitable sites in all wine-producing regions. The spectrum of Zweigelt as a varietal is wide, ranging from easy drinking, unoaked wines to rich and full-bodied single vineyard wines aged in small oak barrels. As a blending partner, it pairs well with its parent varieties Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent, as well as Cabernet & Co.
