A selection of the finest Austrian Red Wines, from the indigenous Zweigelt and Blaufränkisch to the finest Cuvees ever made in Austria.
Zweigelt Ferabam Fischer:
Fischer’s premium Zweigelt, ripe red and sour cherry, fine tobacco, juicy and opulent. From the best Zweigelt parcels around the landmark fir tree (Ferabam) and aged for 15 months in French barriques. Zweigelt is Austria’s signature red wine variety, created a hundred years ago by Dr. Zweigelt by crossing Blaufränkisch and St. Laurent, resulting in a fruity combination with a distinct sour cherry note.
Zweigelt Rubin Carnuntum, Netzl: Zweigelt is the signature grape for the wine region Carnuntum, named after the major Roman settlement, East of Vienna. Only Zweigelt meeting strict quality criteria can be named Rubin Carnuntum. Dark cherry, peppery spice, juicy, elegant and with soft tannins, this is a charming and characterful Zweigelt. Goes well with beef, lamb and game.
