Now when the Austrians can prevent themselves from adding too much oak or going for too much extraction and ripeness, they make some lovely red wines. This is a Blaufrankisch, a grape variety that performs really well in the Burgenland region. Delicious stuff.
Kirnbauer Blaufrankisch Classic 2009 Mittburgenland, Austria
13% alcohol. Fresh with lovely raspberry and blackberry fruit to the fore. Vivid with hints of meat and some green notes. Lovely definition to the ripe black fruits with a hint of pepperiness. The green notes here are really attractive. 90/100 (UK agent Fields, Morris & Verdin)
