The merest hint of mocha accompanies the crushed fruit of the forest aromas on the appetizing nose. Ripe blueberry notes expand on the palate, which is dense with fruit and firm tannins that leave the mouth a little dry. This is sleek but muscular, bold but elegant. It also needs time to mellow a little. Drink 2022–2032. ... More details

From gneiss and mica soils, Prieler's 2015 Schützen am Gebirge Ried Goldberg Leithaberg Blaufränkisch is deep, pure, fresh and elegant on the nose where perfectly ripe dark fruit, black tea and flinty aromas are displayed. Plummy (skin) and sweet tobacco notes appear after a while in the glass. This highly elegant, fresh and juicy-intense yet crunchy Blaufränkisch was aged in 500-liter barrels for 20 months before it finished aging in a 2,300-liter cask; it was only bottled in August this year. The 2015 is generous, silky and wide but linear and fine, a quiet wine that shows its crunchy tannin structure only on the finish. This is a great Blaufränkisch with stimulating acidity. It is still very young and astringent on the finish but impressive and with great aging potential. After a longer while in the glass, this highly delicate and alluring red reveals fresh red berry aromas and Burgundian finesse. Silky, finessed and fresh, this is a great wine from chalky soils. Tasted in Purbach, August 2018.

Country: Austria

For over four thousand years, Austria has been home to some of Europe's finest wines, with a strong domestic wine industry which is beginning to be once again recognized for its world class quality. All over the eastern part of the country, and even in the capital, Vienna, small wineries are working with the grape varietals which flourish in the country's hot summer climate and mineral rich soils, fed by the Danube and other great rivers which cross the flat lands of this part of Austria. Most commonly, wineries work with the Grüner Veltliner grapes which grow so well here, and produce the dry and elegant white wines which typify Austria's viticultural produce. However, many other fine grape varietals are grown and used for a wide range of wine styles, including some extremely interesting sweet white wines similar to those found in neighboring Hungary.
