About

90

"A cloud of reduction still obscures the primary fruit on the nose of this wine. The palate brims with easy cherry fruit that is far juicier than the nose suggests. It's a lovely, fresh-faced red that's light but dense, toned but fruit-driven, with a tangy finish."

Product Description:

Gernot and Heike Heinrich founded their winery in 1990 with just one hectare and steadily grew to 90 hectares today. Heinrich converted to biodynamics in 2006 and is a member of Respekt, a certifying body for biodynamic viticulture in Austria. Heinrich is today one of Austria’s most innovative wine producers. Blaufränkisch comes from two areas: the limestone and schist soils of the Leithaberg; and the sandy loam soils of the south-facing slope of the Parndorfer Platte in Gols. The grapes were hand-harvested and fermented with wild yeasts in a combination of wooden vats and stainless-steel tanks before maturing in large oak vats and used 500-liter barrels.
