Zweigelt Reserve 2017
A vine-cultivator from Langenlois, Friedrich Zweigelt, created the variety 1922 by a crossing of two idigenous varieties: Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent. We are fortunate that some of the oldest Zweigelt vines are now growing in Langenlois. Some of them in our posession. Almost 60-year-old vines form the basis of our Reserve. They roots go deep into the loamy loess soils in the west of Langenlois.
