Burgenland Blaufrankisch 2020750ml
While the year 2020 was all around weird for most of us, it was a fantastic year for Blaufrankisch, especially in the hands of dynamic makers like Weingut Rosi Schuster. This bright, laser-focused and bold red offers juicy, ripe dark red and blue fruit on the nose and palate, backed by peppery spice, hints of forest floor, dark, textural tannins and a long, silky finish that make this a killer partner for just about any meal. Drink now with roasted ham, pork, or poultry or age for up to six years. Organic.
Although the estate still bears the name of his winemaker mother, Rosi, Weingut Rosi Schuster has been managed by her son and current winemaker, Hannes Schuster, since 2007. Garnering international attention and multiple accolades, these beautiful and elegant reflections of Austrian native varieties continue to charm critics and consumers alike vintage after vintage. Hannes has taken his family estate to a new level with his commitment to organic farming, a nurturing approach in the vineyard and a minimalist ideology in the cellar. Since his first release, he has embraced gentle and natural winemaking, utilizing spontaneous fermentation, long lees aging and low amounts of sulphur. Sankt Laurent and Blaufrankisch to be the best expression of his vineyards. The two red grapes now comprise 75% of production and come from an array of amazing sites and soil types ranging from heavy loam to sandstone, gravel and limestone and are spread across 40 small parcels within six villages - Sankt Margarethen, Zagersdorf, Oslip, Schutzen Am Gebirge, Donnerskirchen and Mullendorf.
