WHY WE LOVE THIS WINE
Old school Blaufrankish with red-black fruit, soft tannins and just a hint of meaty iodine.
ABOUT THE WINERY
Much of the current reputation and quality found across Burgenland can be put on the shoulders of Anita and Hans Nittnaus. They were early champions of Blaufrankisch and the first to garner international acclaim for their intense and powerful wines.
They went on to found Pannobile with their like minded neighbors in Gols to help promote their village wines around the world. Their efforts allowed continuous investment and improvements, not just in their own wines, but all of those across the region.
Their son Martin is being groomed to take over and whose influence has already been felt with their conversion to biodynamics in 2015. Vineyards are now dispersed not just in top sites around Gols, but on the east and west sides of the lake and up on the Leithaberg mountains. Most of the wines are made traditionally, in large Austrian oak casks, although top wines can see time in new smaller barrels.
These are classic wines, every bit as good today as they were with their debut 30 years ago.
