Birgit Braunstein - Purbacher Ried Glawarinza 2018
Producer: Birgit Braunstein
Wine name: Purbacher Ried Glawarinza
Classification: Leithaberg DAC
ABV: 13.0

There’s a brooding, dark cherry character to the fruit which lets you know immediately “this is a serious Blaufränkisch”. Everything that I love about this grape is here – the tight, defined cherry fruit, wonderful acids and nutty, spiky tannins.
Even though this is a fairly lean style, there’s a hint of something slightly lactic, or yoghurty that provides a bit of counterplay.
A compelling wine and a great expression of the variety.
