Varietal: Zweigelt
Zweigelt is a crossing of St. Laurent and Blaufränkisch. It is now the most widely-grown red grape variety in Austria.

Country: Hungary
Hungary has been producing a diverse selection of wines for centuries but, in the wine world, it is best known for a few select styles. The most notable wine grapes grown in Hungary's vineyards are a mixture of traditional, regional varieties and the international varieties of French origin which are better known and more easily marketed. The traditional Hungarian white wine varieties include Furmint and Harslevelu (the white grapes used in Tokaj), Olasrizling, Leankya and Keknyelu. These have been joined lately by a raft of new crossings such as Irsay Oliver, Zefir and Zenit, a number of which have been created locally by Hungarian ampelographers. Their red counterparts are Kadarka, Blaufrankisch (known here as both Nagyburgundy and Kekfrankos), Zweigelt, Portugieser (Kekoporto) and also Zierfandler, which originates from across the border in Austria.

Region: Tokaj


Type: Red
Red wine is wine made from dark-coloured grape varieties. The color of red differs based on the grapes variety or varieties used. Interestingly, black grapes yield a juice that is greenish-white. The actual red color comes from anthocyan pigments (also called anthocyanins) from the skin of the grape (exceptions are the relatively uncommon teinturier varieties, which produce a red colored juice). Most of the production centers around the extraction of color and flavor from the grape skin.
