Goldenits Blaufränkisch, Burgenland

The Blaufränkisch grapes for this wine are grown in the Burgenland wine region close to Lake Neusiedl, which straddles the Austrian-Hungarian border. The soils here are of black earth and stone on a clay base; some of the vines are over 30 years old. The grapes are harvested by hand prior to a temperature-controlled fermentation, ageing takes place for a few months in a mixture of previously used French oak barriques and large wooden barrels. It shows cherry fruit, with a light spice element, the palate being medium-bodied with a smooth finish.
