Why We Love This Wine

On the banks of Nusiedler east of Austria in the wine region of Burgenland, dynamic couple Gernot & Heike Heinrich own and operate the Heinrich vineyards that produce the most coveted red wines in all of Austria. All their wines are hand harvested & spontaneously fermented in wild yeast wherein the wines are left with the skins for several weeks and further time is given them to mature & shape the aromas & flavors of the wine through further ageing in oak barrels for 7 to 8 months. Zweigelt consists of half of their total production in the flat, humus rich plots in Heideboden, the gravelly sets of Pardorfer Platte, & the limestone & schist slopes of Leithaberg. The result is wines with fruity expressions reminiscent of cherry, cranberry, & even lingonberry with notes of tea and mild spices. Providing fruity expressions of cherry , red currant, & cranberry with hints of violets & mild traces of tar and mild spices, this Austrian Pinot Noir is light & bright on the palate with tart fruit flavors and prevalent freshness. Light, svelte, & fresh with undertones of smoke & spice, it boasts a silky, creamy texture full of finesse and length. Charming, supple, & fresh, this wine will pair beautifully with roasted game birds, duck dishes, or pork dishes with mushrooms or black truffle sauce.

Tasting Notes

Among all grape varieties, it is only Pinot Noir that intrinsically possesses beauty through its gentle nature or even supposed fragility. Weightless concentration and effortless energy, like a perpetual motion machine. Superb sound quality at low volume. Multifaceted, red-berried fruit is reflected in eternal volition like a fanciful peacock's tail spread in a hall of mirrors. Its supple, fine-grained tannins achieve vitality through a friendly shove of invigorating acid, hoisting sails with a svelte, defined body toward unrepentant wine enjoyment. This 2017 Pinot Noir has the linearity of an architect's ruler paired with the life-affirming sassiness of Ella Fitzgerald. Its inalienable transparency embodies unbridled, honest drinking pleasure.
