There is something unforced and free about this. Lovely.
About This Wine
What an interesting wine. Blaufrankisch & Zweigelt make up equal parts, however, depending on the vintage, this emphasis can change, based on the quality of the hand-picked grapes from each of their vineyards.
The Zweigelt provides a broad and succulent body which is balanced by the muscular dynamic of Blaufrankisch.
It's precise and quite delicate with red-berries and a deft herbal touch, framed by a fresh acidity and firm tannins. It’s elegant and energetic with a focused and multi-layered finish.
Gerhard and Brigitte Pittnauer's wines are simply some of the best coming out of the Burgenland region, at the eastern edge of Austria, highlighting the beauty of local varieties Blaufrankisch, St-Laurent and Zweigelt, as well as excellent Pinot Noir.
Their red wines of brightness and insane drinkability have seen him garner many accolades in recent times, including 2014 Winemaker of the Year by Falstaff magazine, the top winemaker award in Austria.
