With the Toni Hartl Ried Rosenberg Leithaberg Blaufränkisch DAC, a first-class organic red wine comes into the swirling glass. Here it offers a wonderfully bright, purple color. Held at a slight angle, the red wine glass reveals a charming garnet-red hue at the rims. If you give it some air in the glass by swirling it, you can perceive a first-class balance in this red wine, as it does not stand out watery or syrupy or liqueur-like on the walls of the glass. The first nose of the Ried Rosenberg Leithaberg Blaufränkisch DAC flatters with notes of blackberries and black currants. The fruity parts of the bouquet are joined by notes of barrel aging like even more fruity-balsamic nuances.
This wine delights with its elegantly dry taste. It was bottled with only 1 gram of residual sugar. This is a true quality wine, which clearly stands out from simpler qualities and so this Austrian naturally enchants with the finest balance despite all dryness. Excellent taste does not necessarily need residual sugar. On the tongue, this well-balanced red wine is characterized by a tremendously velvety texture. Due to its lively fruit acidity, the Ried Rosenberg Leithaberg Blaufränkisch DAC is exceptionally fresh and lively on the palate. In the finish, this mature red wine from the wine-growing region of Lower Austria finally inspires with considerable length. Once again, hints of black currant and blackberry appear. In the aftertaste, mineral notes of the slate-dominated soils join in.
