Vinous 94 points - Inky ruby with youthful violet highlights. Initially withdrawn nose opens slowly to reveal multiple layers of ripe raspberry, blackberry, minerals and spicy, vanillin oak. Deep, brooding and complex, with the perfectly ripe, youthfully muscular tannins embedded in the juicy fruit. In spite of its 14% alcohol, this blaufränkisch remains impressively elegant. Extremely young, with lovely herbal spice on the finish, this should be laid down for a few years.  (Dec 2013)

Wine maker notes
The Blaufrankisch Alter Berg (literally “old hill”) is from a 25 year-old vineyard in the Leithaberg range on the western shore of the Lake Neusiedl. Leithaberg is a relatively new area for Gernot Heinrich who became attracted to the area’s limestone soils. The Blaufrankisch was manually harvested at the beginning of October and brought into the cellar where it was fermented in oak vats. The wine was aged for 18 months in 500 liter French oak barrels.

Food pairing
Pair with pot roast, chicken empanadas or charcuterie.

Gernot and Heike Heinrich founded their winery in 1990 with 2 ½ acres of vineyard purchased from Gernot”s family. His early work in the family winery, like most of that generation, was purely an agricultural pursuit with goals more related to quantity production. Gernot”s parents had wished their son would choose a different path, because unlike him, they could not see the potential for great wines to be produced from this area. Just over a decade later, the Heinrich”s were recognized with the prestigious Falstaff ”Winemaker of the Year” award. The philosophy at the winery is as transparent and pure as their wines. Their initial challenges were no comparison to the joy and some measure of freedom it gave Gernot & Heike to make a fresh start for the area. That joy and bravery still drives them both today, as they look across Lake Neusiedl to Leithaberg for their next challenge.
