Burgenland Höpler Cuvée K7 Qualitatswein, 2016
An earthy spicy red made from a blend of mainly Blaufränkisch with Syrah and Merlot (which were matured in oak for 16 months). It is medium bodied with a powdery silky texture, well rounded with a firm tannic finish. Grapes were all harvested by hand between September 29 and October 5, 2016. Not as expressive as the 2015 offered last year, it is supple and smooth and should develop nicely. Blaufränkisch is an early budding but late ripening variety, hence requires a warm climate to mature. It is Austria’s second most planted black grape and does well in the southern Burgenland region.
