Culture Club – Austrian Wines

Culture Wine Bar at 14/12/2022 6:30 pm

Culture Club – The wines of Gernot & Heike Heinrich, one of Austria’s most innovative and acclaimed producers

Back in 2019, the team at Radford Dale Imports sat down with industry peers to check out samples from Heinrich in Burgenland, Austria. What followed was the first intake of Austrian wines into South Africa.

The wines were snapped up, but a second shipment has just landed in the Cape, and the opportunity to taste was too good to miss heading into the festive season.

These are an exciting set of wines and a fantastic addition to the progressive selections at Radford Dale Imports.

There are a several new additions to the range from Heinrich; a Weissburgunder (Pinot Blanc), and the Freyheit (‘Freedom’) set of wines, now including a Pinot Noir alongside the clay bottled Graue (Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc, Chardonnay & Neuburger).

There are three expressions of the regions’ flagship red varietal, Blaufrankisch, a favourite varietal among the international sommelier set.
