Stift KlosterneuburgZweigelt is a very fine, typical representative of its variety, it is the original after all!  The wine is deep ruby red in colour with youthful purple tints.  It has the characteristic aroma of fresh, ripe, crunchy cherries and is juicy with restrained power on the palate.  An elegant wine with lovely structure provided by the lightly grippy fully ripe tannins.

Pair the Stift Klosterneuburg Zweigelt with pasta dishes and antipasti.  Also works well with venison and beef dishes.

The Zweigelt variety, created in 1922 by Prof. Zweigelt at the Klosterneuburg School of Winemaking by crossing Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent, is one of Austria’s classic red wine varieties. In the gravely alluvial soil of Tattendorf, this species finds the necessary conditions for producing ideally ripe, oval-shaped, hard-skinned and juicy grapes

Vineyard and Winery

The Zweigelt grapes for this wine are grown in Tattendorf, Thermenregion, Lower Austria on alluvial gravel soil with brown earth at an Elevation of 220 meters. The grapes were harvested in October once they were fully ripened and had two weeks on the skins to soak up colour and tannin.  After traditional fermentation methods the wine was aged in large oak casks for 8 months before being bottled the following November.
