Pinot Noir from Austria is rarely found however this is initially what intrigued us on tasting this French variety planted in the heart of wine country in Austria. Elegant and aromatic on the palate. Aged for just over a year in used oak barrels (2nd and 3rd pass). No surprise that there is limestone found in the vineyards along with clay. These are ideal matches for Pinot Noir. The Höpler winery is a family-owned estate located southeast of Vienna in the region of Burgenland.
