Our featured wine of the week: fEBRUARY 19th
HEINRICH RED (2012, MAGNUM)
RED is an approachable entry into the wines of Gernot and Heike Heinrich and serves as an introduction to the high-quality red wines of Burgenland. It’s made from a blend of Austria’s signature red grape varieties: the soft and fruity Zweigelt; structured and spicy Blaufränkisch; and the aromatic St. Laurent. It is aged for 12 months in used 500-liter oak casks.
RED showcases the enormous strides made in Austrian red wine and exhibits the quality of its native red grape varieties. Zweigelt serves as the wine’s base, providing soft and juicy red-berried fruit while notes of tobacco and spice come from Blaufränkisch. A small percentage of St. Laurent lends floral aromas and refreshing acidity.
We currently have the 2012 is stock and it's great to try this wine with a little bottle age on it. I actually poured this vintage by the glass back in my Lucky Rooster days.

Our wines are often more subtle and earthy than the fruit-bombs that you find on most supermarket shelves but we believe that once you unlock their charms you will be hooked for life. And since these Old World wines were made on smaller vineyards that have existed for generations they also offer quite a great bang for the buck. There are some amazing New World wines out there but they tend to cost a great deal more than we want to charge our customers. We want to be the wine portal for people of all ages and incomes who are new to wine and want to explore without breaking the bank.
