Seifried Nelson Zweigelt 2014

Seifried Nelson Zweigelt 2014 ★★★½Seifried Zweigelt

Zweigelt is rare and rather crazy red wine that was purpose-built (although for what purpose is unclear) in 1922 by Austrian viticulture professor Fritz Zweigelt, from a crafty cross-dressing of It was a crossing of St. Laurent and Blaufränkisch.  Now while you’re still silently mouthing how to say the latter, the former is pronounced “zwhy – geld” (sort of) and according to Wikipedia, it’s also known as Rotburger and should under no circumstance be confused with Rotberger. Bold spicy red berry aromas and a kick of raspberry, liquorice, cranberry and pomegranate on the finish.  Definitely different.
