Weingut Glatzer Blaufrankisch, Carnuntum, Austria 2017

Regular price £15.49

Middle-weight red with the berry fruit and spicy flavor typical of the Blaufrankisch grape

Founded in 1986, Weingut Glatzer is located in Carnuntum, east of Vienna and south of the river Danube. The region is characterised by an area of geological plates and hills, with the loess-covered plates providing fertile farmland while the gravelly hills are covered with woods and vines.

Walter Glatzer’s vineyards cover 54ha, including top sites like Haidacker, Bernreise and Altenberg. The majority of these vineyards are planted to red and white grapes typical of the region, like Zweigelt, St. Laurent, Gruner Veltliner and Blaufrankisch.

Tasting Note: The typical black cherry dominates the nose, a lot of spice, some clove and black pepper, blackberry and some orange zest. On the palate, mellow and spicy, very engaging, blackberry, plum toaster, again clove, allspice, soft and intense
