Professional Wine Reviews for Prieler Blaufrankisch Goldberg 2015

Rated 96 by Wine Enthusiast
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.

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.

Winery Prieler

Country: Austria

Austria has a wonderfully long and illustrious history of wine production which stretches back over four thousand years, and reached its zenith under the Austria-Hungary dual monarchy in the late 19th century, when Vienna was one of the most important centers of culture and fine living in the world. Today, Austria's fertile soils and long, hot summers help the fifty thousand hectares of vineyards in the country achieve exceptionally high quality yields, which are used primarily for the production of the elegant dry white wines for which the country is renowned. The most important grape varietal is still Grüner Veltliner, although many wineries are beginning to expand their repertoire and experiment with many imported grapes from France and further afield, including Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
