Pittnauer Blaufrankisch Rosé 2018
SPECIAL 6 pack BUY. Gorgeous Austrian rose!
“It’s 20-odd years since Gerhard and Brigitte Pittnauer took over the winery in Gols near Lake Neusiedl in Burgenland, bordering Hungary at the eastern edge of Austria. Over that time they’ve pushed the boundaries of Austrian red winemaking, in particular with St Laurent and Zweigelt. But then there’s the Blaufränkisch and – have you ever tried Burgenland Pinot Noir? You must. In 2001 the construction of the fittingly striking production hall in the middle of the vineyards allowed for a quantum jump in quality and quantity. Pittnauer’s wines are elegant, structured, complex and beautifully drinkable – qualities that were highlighted when Gerhard was named 2014 Winemaker of the Year by Falstaff magazine. This, the highest accolade in Austrian wine, shows just how far the Pittnauers have come. It also goes some way to showing what a fiercely gifted individual we have on our hands. But then everything -from the Pitti blend, through the vivid addition-free wines and right up to the devastatingly good single vineyards – will pretty much tell you the same thing.” Notes by Importer Patrick Walsh of Cellarhand
New 2018 is here and it’s on song!
Review of 2016: “This savoury Austrian expression of the blaufränkisch variety has a nutty and marginally confectionery bouquet of red cherries and flowers backed by a hint of cranberry and marzipan. It’s long, smooth and savoury, with juicy, almost sour-edged raspberry and red cherry fruit punctuated by refreshingly bright acids and underscored by a fine, dusty extract.” Gourmet Traveller
We love this fine Austrian Rose !
