Zweigelt Langenlois 2018
Every wine producing village is unique in terms of location, geology and wine culture. The Ortswein (Village Wine) tradition is centuries old and reflects this geological, microclimatic and cultural spectrum. Some of the oldest Zweigelt vines are growing in Langenlois. They have already dug their roots deeply into the loamy loess soils in the west of the town. These vines are the foundation of our Zweigelt which, after spending a few months in cask, expresses beautiful cherry fruit.
[A vine-cultivator from Langenlois, Friedrich Zweigelt, created the variety 1922 by a crossing of two idigenous varieties: Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent.]
