Gernot Heinrich has 30 hectares of vines in Gols, Burgenland, Austria’s easternmost province, only a few kilometres from the Hungarian border. After graduating in viticulture from Klosterneuberg, Gernot’s vinous travels in Bordeaux, Spain, California and Italy convinced him that his best approach was to use indigenous grapes to try and make the highest quality, most characteristic wines he could. He has added a judicious amount of international varieties such as Merlot, Pinot Noir and Syrah. He has been acquiring vineyards and planting local red grapes such as Blaufränkisch, St Laurent and Zweigelt for the last ten years.  St Laurent is a variety viewed by many in this part of Austria as having great potential, but few wines have realised this until now. This version has lovely colour and depth as well as remarkable delicacy and balance. Almost black at the core with flavors of blackberry, elderberry and cassis combined with fine roasted spice.
