The Südburgenland is Austria’s smallest wine region, located on the border of Hungary. In the 1990s, Uwe Schiefer started piecing together his estate. While others were put off by the steep, slate hillsides of Eisenberg, he saw potential – believing that Blaufränkisch would excel here. Today, their wines have a cult following amongst many of the world’s top sommeliers. This is spicy and brooding on the nose, with aromas of rich black cherry, dried herbs and violet. On the palate, incredibly fine tannins and bright acidity mingle with juicy fruit and earthier notes of black olive and aniseed. This is a true food wine and offers a superb introduction to Uwe’s wines. Drink now to 2023.Medium-bodied. (Katherine Dart MW)
