2013 Rosi Schuster Blaufränkisch Burgenland

SKU #1211289 91 points Wine & Spirits

 (Best Buy) A bright, blue-fruited blaufränkisch, this delivers the generous ripeness of the warm 2013 while managing to remain fresh and lively. Fermented spontaneously in open-top vats and free of any new wood, it’s all about fruit and earth, with dark, chewy tannins that hold the flavors long and firm—and suggest that this will age well for another five or six years in the cellar.  (4/2016)

The warm 2013 vintage shines through with plenty of blackberries, ripe raspberries and succulent sour cherries and wet stone in the nose and on the palate. This has everything I look for in a dry red wine - fruit, minerality, fine tannin, complexity and bright acidity. Chill it slightly, let it open up a bit, and you have a perfect match for grilled burgers, lamb, hard cheese, grilled vegetables and pork.

Austria

- Austria is a well-respected wine-growing region in Europe. Yet, even though they make about a third the volume of wine as Germany, not many of these fine bottles make it to the shelves of American wine merchants or restaurants. Lucky for us, their anonymity has translated into incredible value from simple, everyday whites to exquisite dessert wines. Austria shares many grape varieties with Germany—Riesling is king here, too. But the style of Austrian whites is much dryer and more potent. Grüner Veltliner is Austria's second-most-important varietal and makes whites of great versatility and pleasure. Click for a list of bestselling items from Austria.
