Schreiner 2015 Blaufränkisch (Burgenland)

The estate’s classic Blaufränkisch is an authentic introduction to its strongest suit. Grown in a parcel called Gemärk, whose salient components are limestone, sand and sandstone, and sporting a mere 12.4% alcohol, it was aged in large old oak casks for 14 months. The blackberry fruit and iron filings undertow are characteristic of classic Blaufränkisch from Burgenland. Simultaneously friendly and serious, this wine brings off a tightrope act with great aplomb.

Schreiner 2015 Ruster Ausbruch “Extrem V” (Burgenland) [6/375]

As if it wasn’t enough to offer an array of Blaufränkisch-based wines of superlative quality (there are several more that we have not yet imported), the Schreiners have contrived to produce a classic Ruster Ausbruch of transcendent quality. Less oxidative than the style familiar from our beloved Heidi Schröck, this is a luscious, well-braced, fresh and composed dessert wine with all of 7% alcohol but unending reserves of flavour and character. It is not to be missed.

Schreiner 2017 Blaufränkisch (Burgenland)

The estate’s classic Blaufränkisch is an authentic introduction to its strongest suit. Grown in a parcel called Gemärk, whose salient components are limestone, sand and sandstone, and sporting a mere 12.4% alcohol, it was aged in large old oak casks for 14 months.

Simultaneously friendly and serious, this wine brings off a tightrope act with great aplomb.

Schreiner 2017 Blaufränkisch (Burgenland) [12/1000]

After more than 20 years working with Austrian wines, we can honestly say this is the first Blaufränkisch liter wine that we have come across. That would not be reason alone to buy the wine were it not so sheerly drinkable and satisfying. Light and silky, it nonetheless conveys the essential dark flavour and authentic earthtones of Austria’s great aging variety. It is a wine of improbable character for such a modest tariff.
