Zweigelt wasn’t always called so. The lovechild between St Laurent and Blaufrankisch, an Austrian red varietal is an interesting one.
Sommelier Magandeep SINGH and Gagan SHARMA taste this Austria sweetheart this time.
They decode its origins and solve the mystery behind its name, setting it apart from it German counterpart (well, not so much). St Laurent and Blaufrankisch deserve their own posts which we will do sometime soon as well.
We go virtual traveling within Europe, Australia, and Canada where the varietal has homes as well.
