About Blauer Zweigelt

In 1922, Friedrich Zweigelt created a new variety of Austrian grapes used for making red wine. This new creation was a cross between the lightly spiced Blaufränkisch grape and the highly aromatic St. Laurent variety. Aptly named the Zweigelt, this choice grape is now one of the most widely planted red grape varietals in Austria. It is used to make the popular Blauer Zweigelt red wine, ranging from light red to a darker violet-red in color, and contains fresh notes of cherry and other reddish fruits. Styles range from light-bodied to full-bodied and are produced in both stainless-steel barrels and a barrique, a wine barrel made from new oak.

FAQs About Blauer Zweigelt

This type of red wine is best served at room temperature or slightly chilled. To serve at room temperature, try decanting it. Decanting is the process of pouring the wine from one vessel into another. Decanting will separate any sediment from the wine that has formed in the bottom of the bottle as well as aerate the wine for a brighter, smoother flavor. To slightly chill, you can place the bottle in the refrigerator or an ice bucket right before you serve your meal.

This red wine pairs well with many foods. It is an excellent accompaniment to white meats and light red meats with tomato-based sauces. It also ties in nicely with other savory dishes such as chicken and shellfish, especially if prepared in a vinegar sauce or grilled meats such as sausages and lamb chops. 

Blauer Zweigelt also balances well with a range of cheeses, such as feta, goat cheese, Gouda, raclette, Roquefort, majorero, cream cheese, Reblochon, and Bucheron. Avoid sweet and fruity dishes as they will contrast with the higher acidity levels of this Austrian-based wine.
