The Blaufränkisch is a real "Central European". This old native variety is a cross between the Blue Carpet and White Heunisch. Spread mainly in the countries of the former Habsburg monarchy, it is the leader in central Burgenland, called Blaufränkischland.
The autochthonous grape variety Blaufränkisch is represented mainly in the wine-growing regions of northern, central and southern Burgenland and in the eastern wine-growing regions of Lower Austria.
The typical bouquet of the grape variety is characterized by profound berry fruit or cherry fruit and is characterized by characteristic strong acidity. Blaufränkisch can produce large wines with dense structure and distinctive tannins, which are often impetuous in youth, but develop enough velvety facets when ripe enough. Strong wines have very good potential for longer storage.
