Edelgrund is a noticeable step up from the entry-level Heideboden bottling with additional depth and complexity provided by older vines. The wine is both ripe and savory with a black fruit character of blackberries and cherries accented by spice and minerals without the taste of wood. Food Pairing: Neighboring Hungary influences Burgenland's cuisine, and it's not unusual to find dishes like goulash or stuffed peppers in the region, all liberally spiced with paprika. Burgenland's red wines are well-suited to complement these hearty and spicy flavors but offer broad versatility at the table thanks to its firm acidity and savory character.
Silky and very fresh-tasting, with blood orange acidity serving as the spine, while notes of spice, raspberry and wild cherry mark the palate. The pure, mouthwatering finish invites you back for another sip. Drink now through 2025. 225 cases made, 110 cases imported.
