Zweigelt 2021

Zweigelt can be considered as the leading variety of our region. It forms the solid basis of our winery and can also be considered as a classic what concerns the topic of red wine. It scores with its deep and dark fruit and at the same time with its soft character. At the Heideboden, it finds those profound, fertile chernozem soils, which are required to let it ripen 100 % every year.
