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

  • Pittnauer St. Laurent Dorflagen 2015

    Snoothrank:

    A bit restrained with cayenne spice and ripe plum and red currant fruit on the nose. Crisp cranberry, red currant and cherry fruit on the palate with loads of acidity and chewy tannins, turning a bit green towards the finish with a pepper and herb note, some black pepper and a bit of licorice.

    Snoothrank:

    Creamy vanilla and allspice aromas on the nose with fresh cherry, black currant and plum fruit, a hint of minerality and some earthy notes that nod towards a bit of mushroom. Quite fruity on entry to the palate, mostly black cherry, black currant and blackberry fruit with a geyser of acidity and tannin towards the mid palate that releases with a... Read More

  • Wachter Wiesler Blaufränkisch Südbergenland 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Deeply fruited, almost syrupy notes of plum and black currant jam with spicy ground black pepper and thick tarry smoke. Tart, quite acidic and full of zesty cherry and mixed berry fruit flavors on the palate, quite drying on the mid palate with loads of earth, dark spice, concentrated black currant fruit and freshly tapped young sassafras root.

  • Wachter-Wiesler Blaufrankisch Eisenberg Bela-Joska 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Intriguing savory spice, notes of beef bouillon and floral violets on the nose with fresh cherry and soft earth. Ripe, fresh and medium-full bodied on the palate, presenting up front with loads of berry and cherry fruit, but tightly wound at first, this unravels towards the finish, releasing waves of tannins and tart acidity with an herbal oakin...

  • Heinrich Blaufränkisch Burgenland 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Floral, mixed berry aromas with a clean, light and fresh cherry note. Crisp and clean on entry, this brings cherry, cranberry and red currant fruit with a smooth and medium-light body, hints of tarry earth and a savory spice on the finish with more sticky, smoky cranberry. Read More

    Snoothrank:

    Pungent, dusty floral notes of violet and ripe cherry blossom with a hint of raspberry and brown sugar.

  • Nittnaus Heideboden Pinot Blanc 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Simple and fresh herbal yet bready aromas of yeast and pepper with nice peachy floral notes as well. Quite playful. In the mouth this is juicy and more citrus driven, with lemon and grapefruit flavors playing the dominant role in this refreshing glass of wine that is approachable and unpretentious. Read More
