"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."
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.
