Kirnbauer Blaufrankisch Classic 2009 - I really like Austrian reds

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)
