Is a delicious red wine from the Burgenland area Austria. This wine is made from Blaufränkisch, St Laurent and Zweigelt grapes by Weingut Heinrich.
Recommended wine serving temperature between 14°C and 16°C.
The Burgenland is an elongated and narrow wine region from North to South. It is located in the far east of Austria, close to the Hungarian border. The area is almost flat (slightly hilly in the south) and is characterized by the Neusiedler See. This lake is a large swampy lake of 32 kilometers long and only 1 meter deep. A lot of sweet wine is made around the lake. Further south, a lot of red wine is mainly produced.
Because the region is so elongated and because about half of the area is around the lake and the other half is not, there are many types of soils in Burgenland. For example, we find sandy soils in the wine regions of Neusiedlersee and Neusiedlersee-Hügelland. Further south in Mittelburgenland, the soil is mainly made of clay with sand. In the small and mountainous Südburgenland, the soil is mainly made of weathered slate.
Despite the elongation of the area, the climate is virtually the same throughout the region. The climate is Pannonian, with long days full of sun. The temperature differences between day and night are not great, which makes it easy to let grapes ripen. The lake has a huge impact on the climate. It gives a high humidity in the wide area. Particularly in early fall, this causes mist in the morning. The conditions around the lake are therefore ideal for making sweet wines from noble rotten grapes.
The easy-drinking entrance ticket to Heinrich’s world of wine is presented in velvety, deep ruby-red. Red-berried fruit, in particular, crisp cherry is the central element of this light-footed blend of the local varieties Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt and St. Laurent. This is accompanied by subtle tobacco, peppery notes and thorough juiciness. Sophisticated simplicity is the focus of this cool red wine and simplicity indeed demands mastery.Despite the warm vintage, this wine excels with fruit opulence, moderate alcohol, and subtle tannin as it refreshes with herbal spice and nervy acid.
Great wine for on a summer terrace, picnics, country buffets, light lunch, barbecue, parties, informal receptions and meals.
Great wines express a sense of place and they are best able to do this when they are rooted in a biologically diverse environment where soil vitality is intact and vines live in symbiosis with the complex ecosystem in which they live. To lend nature and its manifold aspects a voice through our wines is our ultimate aspiration. The ways and means to this objective are marked by many actions and fundamental decisions that set the course and reflect our ethical and qualitative philosophies. Our decision to convert to bio-dynamic viticulture in 2006 was based on the goal of making our vineyards successively more resilient, more vital, and more heterogeneous.At the same time, we allow our wines and ourselves the freedom of increasingly less intervention. Regardless of the fact that all of our wines are fermented spontaneously and that we often like to leave them on the skins for weeks, it is above all else time that shapes our wines. Time for some means weeks, for others years – but all of our wines are given time with the intention of lending balance for their continued journey. To this end, wines remain unadulterated on their own lees, for the most part in used wooden barrels, and develop their own unique spectrum of aromas over time. We are mindful of these natural processes and observe them closely, but we influence them as little as possible, implementing our idea of producing authentic and truly genuine wines as rigorously as we can.
