Steindorfer Reserve Blaufrankisch
Burgenland, Austria

 For those not familiar, Blaufrankisch it has the approachability of a ripe merlot 
with the savory warmth, spice and depth of color of Syrah, just delicious! 

Using Single Berry Selection technique is what makes this bottling great.
Think about it, every individual berry is evaluated and selected prior to crush. Now that is dedication!

94 Points The Wine Enthusiast

"Beautifully pure and lifted notes of ripe red cherry rise from the glass.
The palate adds a good sprinkling of cinnamon and plum, while freshness and a fine tannic web frame the lovely, pure fruit.
This is juicy, slender and elegant, with a gentle grip on the fresh and aromatic finish." 
Anne Krebiehl, Contributing Editor

Our Thoughts on this wine.....

These 48-year-old vines harvested solely from the Romerstein vineyard  give this Blaufrankisch structure and complexity.  
Aromas of ripe blackberry and cocoa blend seamlessly with spices.
Deep black berry fruit and long, fine, soft tannins balance beautifully with wood and black pepper.
The finish is very long, smooth and velvety with some of the spice and fruit lingering quite nicely on the pallet.
The balance and softness are exceptional.
Perfect match for any cut of steak but especially ribeye!

Unique! Handmade! Exquisite!

Steindorfer is a traditionally-run family operation and located in„Seewinkel“ (Corner of the lake) at the eastern bank of the lake „Neusiedler“.
The family has been engaged with wine for generations. This is truly a "garagiste" winery, everything is done in the family's garage! 
For years, Ernst worked closely with Alois Kracher, one of Austria's and Europe's most acclaimed winemakers.

Following this tradition, they create complex, elaborate-noted and distinctive wines reflecting the typical character of the region.
The pannonian climate as well as the favorable soil conditions of this northern part of the Burgenland- Austria ´s most eastern state – are allowing the production of superior quality wine.
All grapes are handpicked and treated as well as processed with the highest accuracy.

While the red wines are uniformly excellent, Steindorfer is also quite famous for the quality of the  dessert wines -
both BeerenAuslese and TrockenbeerenAuslese rival the very best Sauternes produced in Bordeaux.
