Reviews of purchase Birgit Braunstein, Oxhoft, 2011
The color of the wine is red ruby.
A rich, full taste of wine reveals the rich tones of cherry and plum, nuances of spices and tannic strokes. The wine shows a good structure and a steady, elegant aftertaste.
The wine has a rich, complex aroma, in which the tones of red fruits, oak streaks and spicy notes predominate.
Experts recommend to serve this wine to meat dishes: stewed venison, lamb with mashed potatoes, grilled vegetables and fresh pastries.
Birgit Braunstein, Oxhoft is an exquisite wine made from blends of Blaufrankisch, Cabernet Sauvignon and Zweigelt. Grapes are harvested on the best parts of the farm located on the slopes of Mount Laitagebirge. Thanks to a two-year exposure in oak barrels, wine acquires a refined, powerful, well-structured taste. Ideal addition to it will be meat dishes, venison, lamb, as well as grilled vegetables and braised potatoes.
Birgit Braunstein is an Austrian winery in Burgenland, which managed to win the recognition of wine connoisseurs not only in Austria but also abroad. In 2005, the current owner of the winery, in honor of which the company was named, received the title "Winemaker of the Year". Birgit refers to the cause of his life, not just with love, but with real passion and dedication, showing love for nature and even resigning to her strength and greatness. Having obtained a winery as an inheritance from his father, today she manifests herself both as a creator of wines and as a manager.
The vineyards of the Birgit Braunstein farm extend along the Laitagebirge. Rich in shale, limestone and quartz, soils provide an ideal base for creating exquisite terroir wines. Warm winds from the lake Neusiedler-Ze, give future wines a special maturity, and the fresh cool night air of this climatic zone guarantees their sonority, sophistication and lively character. The total area of the vineyards is 22 hectares. Annually about 100,000 bottles of wine are produced. The farm uses biodynamic methods of viticulture.
