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.

  • Zantho St. Laurent 2008

    Snoothrank:

    You can tell this is from a colder region. It's a little green, with almost no mid pallet. I think it's an ok wine, maybe a little over priced Read More

  • Rosi Schuster Blaufrankish 2009

    Snoothrank:

    I found this to be a very lively quaff with lots of acid and note of red cherry and raspberry. It drinks very much like a zippy pinot noir. Not a whole lot of balance, however. Read More

  • Anton Iby Blaufränkisch Classic 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Wide open on the nose with earthy aromas of barnyard, diesel, dried peach and dried mushroom accenting amarena cherry fruit. Plump and almost sweet on entry, with soft tannins supporting nicely delineated black plum skin and light blackberry fruit. This is juicy and clear; though it lacks some complexity, it does pick up a nice streak of wild he... Read More

  • Juris Zweigelt 2010

    Snoothrank:

    Soft and slightly funky on the nose with notes of something vaguely recalling boiled pig skin lying under beautiful candied medicinal and violet tones. Theres some dried mushroom here as well, a nice base of juniper-laced blackberries. Broad and soft on entry, this is really open for business texturally with finely polished fruit tannins and jui...

  • Anita & Hans Nittnaus Burgenland Kalk and Schiefer Blaufrankisch 2006

    Snoothrank:

    A bit of funk greets the nose, reductive, though there is a deep gaminess here, with spicy mint and juniper framing notes to the dried berry fruit. Silky on entry, this shows fine focus in the mouth with a lovely nuanced Burgundian quality to the flavors. Fresh and dried berries are joined by dried flower petals, hints of beet root and spice, an... Read More
