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.

  • Lenz Moser White Blend Beerenauslese Prestige 1999

    Snoothrank:

    Have had this in my cellar for many years, probably 10+. Enjoyed it on 6 April, 2012 with chocolate fondant prepared by my youngest daughter. A faboulus fondant by the way. An old sweet wine like this (from 1999) is always risky, but can be rewarding as well. This was the latter, definitely - smooth, light, with limited and gentle sweetness. A ... Read More

  • Mariell Blaufränkisch Point 2005

    Snoothrank:

    Strong, earthy berries up front, with a lot of slightly bitter acidity balanced by a bit of leather and wood at the end. Like a mullet, business front, but party in the back. It's not as harmonious as the price point might suggest, but it is a confident wine with a lot going on. Read More

  • Heinrich Zweigelt 2007

    Snoothrank:

    The taste in great - smooth, fruity just enough without being too fruity, perfect acidity, very drinkable. Very nice surprise, the best I've had since (?) in that price range. Very light aroma, a little too light though to my taste, otherwise I would give it 5. Read More
