Very soft, open wine. It is rich, with an opulent texture, while its tannins are a whisper among the ripe red berry fruits and sweetness. The acidity brings the wine attractively to a close.
A heavily tannic wine, probably with too much extraction for Pinot Noir. That said, you can still taste red cherry and strawberry flavors, so the wine may well soften. Keep for a year.
Weninger already makes impressive Blaufränkisch in Austria, so his endeavors with the same grape in Hungary (named Kekfrankos here) are, not surprisingly, successful. A wave of anise, black pepper and blueberry on the nose, paired with smooth, elegant and structured flavors of the same on the palate, impress. The wine has depth but a dry, poised overall character…
The Mittelburgenland appellation is dedicated to the typicity of Blaufränkisch. This ripe, fruity effort shows just the right combination of plum and tannin, along with pure, bright acidity. Age for 3–4 years. Screwcap.
