Burgenland Wine

Burgenland is a major wine-producing region located in Austria’s southeast. It is Austria’s warmest region, guaranteeing ideal ripeness year after year. When Austria was a part of the Austro-Hugarian Empire, it was known primarily for its Ausbruch-style dessert wines, which are still made there. The influence of a large, shallow lake called Neusiedlersee creates an ideal environment for botrytis, encouraging the production of these dessert wines.

Today, Burgenland is best-known as Austria’s preeminent producer of quality dry red wines. The local red wines are produced mostly from Blaufrankisch, St-Laurent, and Zweigelt, though international varieties also make an appearance.

Burgenland’s subregions are Mittelburgenland, which produces mostly reds from Blaufrankisch and Zweigelt; Neusiedlersee, which is known for botrytized dessert wines; Neusiedlersee-Hugelland, the home of Ausbruch wines; and Sudburgenland, another region that produces mostly red wines.

  • Paul Achs Lust & Leben Burgenland 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Spicy and earthy with an herbal note of black pepper and rich smoke on the nose. Light, tart and juicy with chewy tannins and generous cranberry and cherry fruit on the palate, this dusty and dry wine does perk up on the finish with a burst of acidity, dried prune fruit and perfumed oak spice.

    Fresh spice and floral cherry blossom aromas with rich fruit notes of raspberry, cherry and red currant on the nose.

    Snoothrank:

    A combination of Blaufränkisch, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syrah. Earth, dark spice and bold fruit aromas with a stately blend of black cherry, blackberry and black currant fruit on the nose, somehow restrained even in its expression. Dark and brooding on the palate with stormy black cherry and blackberry fruit roiled by strong tannins, bol... Read More
