Professional Wine Reviews for Paul Achs Blaufrankisch Altenberg 2015

Rated 92 by Wine Advocate
From loamy, gravelly sand and shell limestone soils, the 2015 Altenberg Blaufränkisch offers an intensely fruity and fragrant bouquet of red and dark berries. Full-bodied, pure and fresh, with ripe, round tannins and fleshy, well-concentrated fruit, this is an unpretentious, silky-textured and finessed Altenberg that already drinks very well but will benefit from further bottle aging. With its silky finesse and purity, this is a pretty Burgundian Blaufränkisch with good salinity and tension on the mineral-fresh finish. Tasted August 2018.

Winery Paul Achs

Region: Burgenland

Austria is a fascinating and ancient wine producing country, which once was heralded by the royal families and aristocracy of Europe as one of the finest and most important centers of viticulture in the world. Indeed, the wines of this central European country are home to many of the most surprising and seductive wines available today, and the eastern region of Burgenland is perhaps one of the finest regions Austria has. Whilst most of Austria is renowned for its off-dry and flavorful white wines, Burgenland is home to the country's red wine producers, with vineyards there being full of Pinot Noir, Zwiegelt and Blaufrankisch grapes, resulting in a wide palate of delicious and juicy reds. This is perhaps due to the relatively large amounts of sunshine and heat the region enjoys each year, and the proximity to one of the country's largest lakes, which helps red grapes reach their full potential.

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.
