The Zweigelt is Austria's most popular red wine. This is - not least - due to the versatility of its crossings. Ranged from fine and fruity, classically matured wines to powerful top end wines from barrique barrels. The Zweigelt owes its special regional nature - juicy and fruity, yet slightly salty in flavour - to distinctive regional characteristics: small and medium-sized salt and soda lakes, an underground mineral water lake and the special Pannonian microclimate which is regulated by the Lake Neusiedl. This provenance combined with the craftsmanship of each individual winemaker, results in this impressive multifaceted variety of red grape.
