Blaufränkisch - Weingut Brietenfelder
Crystalline gems from the Weinviertel.
Harald Breitenfelder comes from a traditional wine-and-farm family as is customary in the Weinviertel. Together with his wife he has focused the business completely on first class wine production. It is the typical size for an Austrian family winery, at around 18 hectares
He is part of a new wave of innovative winemakers who have been changing the reputation of the region. His approach is modern and ambitious and produces elegant and precise wines - several Grüner Veltliner of outstanding quality, elegant first class whites and stylish fruity reds.
The wines are serial award winners and after tasting the wines it is easy to understand why. Harald is one of our core winemakers for Weinviertel and we are very pleased and proud to be able to bring these wines to the UK.
They also have some lovely guest rooms if you are ever visiting the Weinviertel
The Blaufränkisch grape is grown throughout eastern Europe but many of the best Blaufränkish wines are from Austria where it makes a fruity and spicy red wine that is graceful, powerful, complex with a refreshing acidity. Blaufränkisch has Pinot Noir's versatility - it can be made as rosé, a light and fruity red, clean and well bodied or aged and oaked. Thanks to the acidity and tanins it ages exceptionally well.
In Germany Blaufränkish is typically called Lemberger and in Hungary it is called Kékfrankos.
Our Blaufränkisch wines mostly come from great producers in the Austrian Burgenland region which has an ideal climate for Blaufränkisch. Our reference Blaufränkisch would be Gunter & Regina Triebaumer but we offer a wide choice of styles and terroirs so you can explore Blaufränkisch in all its facets. For example, Kiss is dense and mineral, Heidi Schröck's will show fruit and crystalline purity while Alex Schreiner makes it in an almost Italian style. We can offer a small selection of cult Blaufränkisch on occasion. We also sometimes have Kékfrankos from Hungary.
