Arrowleaf Cellars Zwiegelt


Pronounced 'ts-vi-gelt', this 1922 Blaufršnkisch X St. Laurent crossing was pioneered by Dr. Zweigelt of Austria.† It has since rapidly gained in popularity and is now Austria's most widely planted red grape.† There has been interest here as well and Canada might just become its home away from home.† The growing conditions of the Okanagan are ideal for this grape. † This is a darkly colored wine with cherry, raspberry and spicy aromas.† The taste is medium to full-bodied with rich fruit and vanilla oak flavours lingering on the finish.
