The Vorspannhof Mayr Zweigelt is light to medium in weight, with some cherry flavors, a hit of peppery spice, and good acidity. Lower in alcohol so don't be shy to chill this puppy down and use it as an alternative to Pinot Noir or Beaujolais!
Zweigelt (pronounced: SVY-gelt) was made as a cross of the two other Austrian red grapes — Blaüfrankish and St. Laurent — in 1922 by Dr. Fritz Zweigelt of one of the wine universities near Vienna. Today, it’s the second most grown grape in Austria (after Grüner Veltliner).
