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.

Burgenland on Snooth

  • 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.

  • Anita and Hans Nittnaus Pannobile Burgenland 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Fresh spice and floral cherry blossom aromas with rich fruit notes of raspberry, cherry and red currant on the nose. Silky textured and warming on the palate with a delicate blend of raspberry and cherry fruits meeting bold acidity and baking spice with just enough tannic structure to meld perfectly into a balanced, enjoyable and unassuming but ...

  • Kirnbauer Das Phantom Burgenland 2015

    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

    Floral licorice notes with soft sawdust aromas and fruit notes of plum, black cherry and savory minerality.

    Snoothrank:

    Made with each one of the heritage family grapes, Zweigelt, Blaufränkisch, and Sankt Laurent. Dark raisin and plum aromas with a toasted smoky richness and soft red fruit notes.

    Sweet spice and lightly floral aromas with rich, syrupy cherry notes and soft strawberry jam.

  • De la Rosa Lev St. Laurent Burgenland 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Whole wheat toast, bold cherries and strawberry notes and an earthiness here on the nose. On the palate this is cool, tart and fresh with cranberry, cherry and strawberry fruit, zesty acidity and a clean palate of refreshing earthiness, finishing on the dry side with pleasant spice and a long length streaked with texture and bold fruit.

  • Steindorfer St. Laurent Reserve Burgenland 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Pronounced campfire aromas with notes of freshly fertilized farmland and dark black currant. Brings a load more fruit on the palate, mostly dried raisin and dark blackberry, notes present but mostly overshadowed by toasted leather and charred oak notes, full spice and sharp acidity cutting through on the finish, leaving a dull smoldering heat.
