HALF BOTTLES: RED

Full-bodied New World reds - BLAUFRANKISCH, Uwe Schiefer. Burgenland, Austria

2012 BLAUFRANKISCH, Szapary, Uwe Schiefer. Burgenland, Austria (Half Bottle)

Organic

Alcohol Percentage: 13%
Area: This is from south Burgenland, a small wine region on the borders with Hungary, producing many of Austria's top reds
Grape Variety: 100% Blaufrankisch
Old Bridge Rating: Jancis Robinson neatly describes Blaufrankisch as the "quintessentially middle European and to my mind produces some of the most succulent, racyreds of Austria (more distinction than the international varieties and more freshness than St Laurent)."
This is a classic example of the style, also endorsed by David Schildknecht of 'The Wine Advocate' - "Schiefer’s conception of Blaufrankisch as a wine with site-sensitivity and finesse comparable, and best handled in a manner akin to that of Burgundian Pinot Noir and not a wine of, as he puts it, 'tannin and power'."
