What You Need To Know
Best known for its aromatic Rieslings
and Grüner Veltliners, Austria also turns out terrific reds, mostly
from Burgenland, a region along the Hungarian border. Though still
obscure in the US, Zweigelt (ZVY-gelt) is Austria’s most popular red
wine, beloved for its spicy, licorice-edged cherry flavors and vibrant
acidity. This example comes from Alex Schreiner, a one of a handful
of dynamic young vintners bringing new attention to Burgenland’s
reds. Alex helps his father with the family winery but also makes
a handful of wines under his own label, including this estate-grown
offering, made with organic grapes.
