In blind tastings, Blau can be mistaken for a Pinot Noir or Gamay for its bright floral and spicy aromas though tends to be more vibrant and spicy. From the light, fresh and fruity un-oaked style to the richer, full-bodied styles, quality Blau reflects its terroir and has a sense of place about it. As Austria’s signature grape, it tends to be medium-bodied with fine grained tannins and medium-high acidity. Typical aromas will spice, black pepper and a tanginess, which can often be found in Austrian wines.
With its origins from South-West France, it sis 1 of 6 grapes permitted in the blend of a red bordeaux wine. The name Merlot links to the French blackbird 'Merle', as a reference to the colurof the grape. Medium-full bodied with soft tannins and fleshy cherry and plum notes. Versatile style that pairs with many bold flavours
Light in colour and body with a silky fruit intensity of raspberry and cherry and a touch of spice when oak aged. Pairs well with roasted flavours
Thought of as a deeper, more powerful Pinot Noir with its origins in Austria. Medium body with soft, fine tannins and a velvety mouthfeel. Pairs well with richly flavoured foods such as cured meats and mushroom risotto
Style | Fresh & Light
A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).
