Goldenits Zweigold Zweigelt, Burgenland

Goldenits Zweigold Zweigelt, Burgenland

The Zweigelt grape is a fairly recent variety, being a cross of the St Laurent and Blaufränkisch varieties, it only began to be widely planted in the 1960s. The grapes are grown in mature vineyards, some over 30 years old, in the Lake Neusiedl sub-region of the Burgenland wine region, on black soils mixed with some stone and gravel. Much of the fermentation of the hand-harvested grapes takes place in large wooden casks, the wine also undergoes a few months ageing in similar barrels. Ruby-garnet in colour, the wine shows cherry and dark fruits, a note of violet and a touch of spice.
