Weingut Paul Kerschbaum is one of the leading wineries in Austria. It is located in the Blaufränkischland Horitschon, in Burgenland. The term "Blaufränkischland" is used to describe a wine-growing region, as well as Central Burgenland, where mainly the grape variety Blaufränkisch is cultivated. Paul Kerschbaum's aim is to produce powerful, long-lasting wines with a wooden touch. In 2011 Paul Kerschbaum has put the production of the wines into the hands of his son, Michael. The Dürrau location is impressive due to its soil properties. The soil is very loamy, almost clayey, where the Blaufränkisch variety feels particularly well. In dry years, this reed vouches for impressive quality. The variety is aged exclusively in barrique barrels, where it is stored for at least 14 months. This wine reaches drinking maturity after about 5 years. It goes best with the following dishes: roasted meat, feathered game, furred game, lamb.Tasting notes:Deep dark ruby garnet with violet reflections in the glass.
