Blaufränkisch Ried Goldberg 2017
0,75 liters; contains sulfites
Many things are different in Goldberg. The vineyard faces away from the lake and it is not based on limestone, but rather on schist. Refreshing winds circulate though vine rows that my father planted in his soils in 1972, the year he took over the winery. He was also the one that first explored the intrinsic quality of Goldberg. He observed, analysed and made subsequently decisions that made it one of the great wines of Burgenland.
Finesse and power unite in Blaufränkisch from Goldberg. Its tannin structure is compact and the aromas first suggest warmth and autumn leaves before revealing red fruit notes. You taste wild cherry in warm vintages, while in cooler years sour cherry and fresh earthiness set the tone.
