Professional Wine Reviews for Nittnaus Blaufrankisch Kalk & Schiefer 2016

Rated 90 by Wine Enthusiast
A peppery hint of ripe, red cherry entices on the subtle, understated nose of this wine. That pepper note spices everything on the translucent, honest, fresh-faced palate. Between gentle grip and mouthwatering freshness, there's tons of straightforward pleasure here.

Winery Nittnaus

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

All over the flat parts of the country in eastern Austria, Grüner Veltliner grapevines can be found growing to full ripeness under the blazing summer sunshine the country enjoys. For over four thousand years, Austria has been an important location for wine production, with a strong sense of tradition driving the modern wine industry to this day. Now, the country has over fifty thousand hectares under vine, and wineries are beginning to experiment more and more with imported grape varietals such as Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, alongside the traditional vines associated with the country. Austria is most commonly known for their excellent dry white wines, which are extremely elegant and generally capable of expressing their fine terroir, making it a fascinating country to explore from a wine drinker's perspective.
