Wine Review Report :

wein.plus rating: very good (86 WP)
Last reviewed: 8 February, 2008
Editor note: Forest strawberries, raspberries and plums on the nose, delicate dried herbsm smoky and roasted notes, sweet spicy oak. Clear and quite juicy on the palate, elegant, refreshing acidity and very fine tannins, some more delicate herbaceous traces, mineral notes in the background, light, elegant acid bite, not particularly deep, delicate tart notes on a very good finish. Significantly better than the first sample.

Clear and tranquil on the palate, elegan fruit and light roasted notes, very fine tannins, delicate acid bite, mineral traces in the background, not particularly deep, but very well balanced, good finish.

The province of Burgenland with the capital Eisenstadt is located in the very east of Austria. It borders Slovakia in the north, Hungary in the east, Slovenia in the south for a few kilometres and the two Austrian provinces of Lower Austria and Styria in the west. Wine-growing has been of great importance here for at least two and a half millennia, which is underlined by the regional variation of the historian Johannes Aventinus (1477-1534)'s saying "Extra Pannoniam non es vita; si est vita, non est ita" (You cannot live outside Pannonia; if you can live, you cannot live like here)....
