Zweigelt - Vinedressers

Reserve Zweigelt - Vinedressers Wine Details
Price: $18.95 per bottle

Description: Deep colour carries luscious plum and slightly nutty aromas. A lovely, dancing finish for a wine that will also be very age worthy.

Varietal Definition
Zweigelt is a red wine grape variety developed in 1922, at the Federal Institute for Viticulture and Pomology at Klosterneuburg, by Fritz Zweigelt. It was a crossing of Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent. It is now the most widely -grown red grape variety in Austria, as well as having some presence in Canada's vineyards.
