Steindorfer Apetlon Rouge Burgenland 2015 Product #32732 (In Stock)
Steindorfer Apetlon Rouge Burgenland 2015 Steindorfer Apetlon Rouge Burgenland 2015

The 2013 edition was our most popular Austrian red wine ever – and the 2015 is clearly better! The father/son team of Ernst and Roland Steindorfer craft this wine from their nicely ripe Burgenland plots of Blaufränkisch (40%), St. Laurent and Zweigelt (30% each).  Aging for 17 months in 2nd and 3rd use French oak barriques pulls the wine together nicely.  The flavors are a bit richer and deeper this year, with roasted strawberry and blackberry puree fruit complemented by complex shadings of exotic spice, dark chocolate, and earth.  The sweet, tangy, fruit pumps out through a finish supported by fine tannins and leaving notes of chocolate, spice, and fruit lingering behind.  It’s juicy and fruit-filled enough to enjoy solo and has the rich earth, chocolate and crisp tannins to match roasted meats and more.

"The nose brims with fruit. Fleshy, almost overripe red cherry sets the tone on the nose that carries through to the palate. The body is juicy but has some grip while the cherry fruit attains crunch, a touch of white pepper spice and more freshness than the nose would suggest. The finish is vivid and moreish.”Wine Enthusiast 91 points
