Ernst Triebaumer Blaufrankisch Ried Oberer Wald 2018
Red wine. Rust, Austria. Sustainable. Blaufränkisch. This Austrian red is a true powerhouse, with a nose dominated by blackcurrant and hedgerow fruits, and a bright, almost citric top note that adds an intriguing complexity. On the palate, the high acidity gives way to tannins that are initially fine, but gradually become more pronounced, adding to the wine's impressive structure and depth. Despite its full-bodied power, this wine manages to maintain a sense of elegance and restraint, with the alcohol providing support rather than dominating the overall experience. The finish is long and satisfying.
