Anita & Hans Nittnaus Burgenland Kalk and Schiefer Blaufrankisch 2006

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

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, and a nice savory vein that ties everything together. The balance is excellent; nothing sticks out but everything is very much present. The finish reveals lovely purity of fruit with some chalky minerality and a more savory, almost medicinal nuance that leads to a finale pop of gorgeous wild blackberry/cherry fruit. Subtle and sophisticated. 91pts
