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 to mature & shape the aromas & flavors of the wine through further aging 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. Wonderfully elegant, this deep colored red with fresh & pristine black cherry, blackberry, & floral aromas with hints of pepper mill spice, licorice, & hibiscus and trace tinges of woodsmoke with faint mineral elements. Juicy on the palate with cherry jam & soft tobacco hints, this wine boasts a vivid acidity & length with fresh dark berry fruit laced tannins and a plum finish. You can't go wrong in pairing this fine wine with Braised Meat & vegetables with egg noodles or potatoes.

Tasting Notes

Providing unbridled drinking pleasure, the 2015 Blaufrankisch dances playfully back and forth between the refreshing red-berried fruitiness of homemade cranberry, cherry, and lingonberry jelly and the piquant spice of an herb garden - not to mention the pepper mill. The delineated compact body swings in coastal harmony with fine-grained, soft tannin and a delicate, animating acid nerve. A proud and elegant representative of its pedigree that cheerfully brings just the right doses of concentration and body into the glass without a hint of heaviness.
