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.

Style |
A wine between 12.5-13.5% alcohol with more some intensity of fruit and stronger flavours than in a light bodied wine. Climate and winemaking techniques such as when the grapes are picked at harvest time, ageing, oak will affect the shape and boldness of a wine. With medium to high acidity and/or medium tannins, these are quintessential foodie wines. If your preference is for wines with a bit more body and concentration, then look out for these grape varieties: 2-3 year aged whites such as Chardonnay, Riesling, Gruner Veltliner and for the reds, Sangiovese, Garnacha, Cabernet Franc, Kekfrankos.

Description

Straightforward, lean and precise. A natural, low intervention wine that is unfiltered, reflecting all the characteristics of the local Carnuntum hilly terroir and grape varietal. The Blaufränkisch vines are up to 18 years old and cultivated on limestone soils at 260m altitude and planted at high density (5000 plants/ha) to encourage fruit intensity. The grapes were hand harvested using gentle extraction in the winery and fermented spontaneously before being aged in used 500 L oak barrel. The final wine has great acidity and freshness with sour cherry fruits and a spiciness

Food pairing

Blaufränkisch is a very food-friendly versatile wine As the parent grape of Gamay (and Zweigelt) it is generally light to medium-bodied with medium-high acidity Pairs well with everything from fried, roasted or barbequed chicken, pork and vegetables to heartier dishes like duck and beef stew
