Additional Information on Paul Achs Blaufrankisch Burgenland 2006

Winery: Paul Achs

Region: Burgenland

The wine regions of Austria reveal an impressive array of grape varietals and wine styles, and yet this ancient and proud land, once the home to the favorite wines of the crowned head of Europe, is still mostly known for its off-dry, fine white wines and dessert wines. The region of Burgenland provides a little variety to the produce of Austria, and due to the exceptional amount of sunshine the region receives, and its proximity to the vast lakes of eastern Austria, it is known as the country's 'red wine quarter'. Indeed, the vast majority of grapes grown in Burgenland are for the production of Austria's characterful and flavorful red wines, made from the Pinot Noir, Zwiegelt and Blaufrankisch grapes which flourish in the fine terroir found there.

Country: Austria

Austria is a fascinating country when it comes to wine production, and with a wine culture that stretches back over four thousand years, it is one of the oldest viticultural centers in the world. Today, it is the Grüner Veltliner varietal grape which is the most widely grown and processed, producing elegant dry white wines, and very flavorful and aromatic sweet wines enjoyed to a great extent by local communities, and which are beginning to receive the recognition they deserve by the global wine market. Austria's eastern flatlands benefit from fertile and mineral rich soils, fed by the great river Danube, as well as the long hot summers the country enjoys with low precipitation. Today, over fifty thousand hectares of Austrian land is under vine, and even within the city limits of Vienna, high quality wine is produced and enjoyed.
