91 Pts Wine Enthusiast
"This is a wood-aged wine that shows structure, dense tannins as well as juicy red fruits. The wood is finely integrated, lending a round texture to go with the dry character of the wine. For aging 4â6 years." Reviewed 7/1/2012
Winery Tasting Notes
"Deep purple core fading to clear rim. Black cherry and rich raspberry aromas mingle with stemmed tomatoes in a backdrop of grilled seasoned meat. Black and red fruits create quite an introduction. The pronounced raspberry and balsamic notes are lush and ripe with an ethereal herbaceous aura. Pair with medium rare rosemary dijon mustard and garlic rack of lamb with crispy fried onion rings and whole wheat spaetzle, and dressed with balsamic cauliflower florets dusted with paprika."
This wine takes its name from the grape variety. Lemberger/Kekfrankos are synonyms from surrounding countries. Believed to originate in modern day Austria's Mittelburgenland region, of the indigenous varieties, the late-ripening Blaufrankisch is not very demanding when it comes to soil. It tolerates chalky soils. But the truth is that it prospers best in deep, fertile loess-clay soils. Typical Austrian Blaufrankisch shows a restrained, old world style.
About Gernot & Heike Heinrich
"Gernot and Heike Heinrich founded their winery in 1990 with 2 1/2 acres of vineyard purchased from Gernot's family. His early work in the family winery, like most of that generation, was purely an agricultural pursuit with goals more related to quantity production. Gernot's parents had wished their son would choose a different path, because unlike him, they could not see the potential for great wines to be produced from this area.
Just over a decade later, the Heinrich's were recognized with the prestigious Falstaff âWinemaker of the Yearâ award. The philosophy at the winery is as transparent and pure as their wines. Their initial challenges were no comparison to the joy and some measure of freedom it gave Gernot & Heike to make a fresh start for the area. That joy and bravery still drives them both today, as they look across Lake Neusiedl to Leithaberg for their next challenge."
