Winzerin Birgit Wiederstein 2018 Blaufrankisch, Carnuntum, Austria

Wild woman wine. I think that can aptly describe the creations of Birgit Wiederstein. Birgit’s vines (and 280 year-old cellar) are in Göttlesbrunn, the center of the undervalued Carnuntum wine region of Austria. Birgit believes in natural beauty. For these reasons, she works completely biodynamically, allowing the vineyard and the vines to show their best side without any makeup.  .   -Cara P.

Farming: Biodynamic 

Winemaker: Birgit Wiederstien 

Varieties: Blaufrankisch

Soil / Terroir: Clay limestone 

Vinification: Birgit creates this wine as if she's gone back in time 100 years. She hand harvests the grapes and foot stomps them before they undergo spontaneous fermentation. Aged in a large wooden barrel for 2 to 4 years, bottled unfiltered and left to mature in bottle in her cool cellars. The paper label was created by Birgit's uncle, in letterpress, is glued by hand, and the bottle is then sealed and wrapped by hand.

Tasting Notes: A structured, balanced and gracious red wine. Medium bodied, aromas of freshly picked blackberries, crushed red plums, wet river rock and hints of mocha and red florals on the finish. 

Less than 600 bottles produced.
