Cheeky little Austrian blend of Zweigelt and St. Laurent. Juicy juicy blueberry, dark chocolate, balsamic
Nose: Perfumed violets, macerated cherries and blackberries and cocoa
Palate: Black raspberries, blueberries, earth and balsamic. My favorite description: “as if Morello cherries were sliced with lemon and then dusted in very dark cocoa”. This is a really nice, complex but juicy wine, served chilled, medium bodied with tons of dark juicy fruit and very light tannins.
Winemaking Notes: All hand harvested, farmed organically and biodynamically, wild fermented, unfiltered, unfined. Fermented in stainless and aged in large neutral oak. Carbonic maceration and light extraction.
Producer Notes: Experimental young winemaker, first vintage in 2000, took over his father’s vineyards and grew them from 3Ha to 19Ha. Farms naturally, minimal intervention.
Area Notes: Burgenland is unique amongst Austrian regions, being located on a great plain beside a large lake, whereas the majority of the country consists of Alps and more mountainous areas. Warmer than most of Austria, yet tempered by the lake, the region makes high quality, old world wines. Puzta refers to this plain, which used to be a part of Hungary.
