Zweigelt Stella

The red grape variety (also Zweigelt Stella RT) is an interspecific new cross between Zweigelt x Eger 1. It contains genes from Vitis berlandieri, Vitis labrusca, Vitis lincecumii, Vitis rupestris and Vitis vinifera. The hybrid was crossed in 1996 in Gols (Burgenland, Austria) by the private breeders Dr. Gertrude Mayer and Georg Paul Weiss under the name Aromatica. A similar variety of the vine breeding company is Anthoprim. This vigorous, frost-hardy vine is resistant to both powdery mildew and botrytis. It is therefore considered a PIWI variety. The variety yields colourful and tannin-rich red wines. No stocks were reported in 2016 (Kym Anderson statistics).
