Native of the Burgenland like the hare.
Hares are of course just as common outside the Burgenland but we do have lots of them. Especially the youngs hide still between the plants where they are almost perfectly disguised. And even better, juicy herbs almost grow into their mouths. The juicier the herbs, the less interesting the young vines are for them which then benefits us winegrowers. We do like that!
Blaufränkisch is a very old and traditional Austrian red wine variety and one of the most precious vines we have. Its main characteristic lies in the pronounced fruitiness which very few other varieties are able to approach. Other distinctive qualities are an appealing tannin level, an inspiring acidity and the noticable effect of the soil on the overall appearance. Blaufränkisch wines are famous for their drinkability which they are able to prove at many opportunities.
Our dry Blaufränkisch 2009 gleams in a beatuful red color and shows violet-blue reflexions. The pronounced fruity bouquet reminds on dark wild berries and goes harmonically with its tender-tart aromatic flavour.
This wine is well rounded, very palatable to drink and thus an ideal companion at the table for a wide range of dishes.
Reaches its optimum 1-2 years after the harvest. Can be kept for 4-5 years.
