Weninger 2011: Natural diversity

Weninger Weninger Weninger Weninger

“Since the only ingredients in our wines are the grapes themselves, it is logical that they taste different every year. This is a fascinating and great thing. I can only react to the climate with my work in the vineyard. While pruning I try to predict the year ahead and my intuition helps me as I’ve been doing this for over 13 years now. In the cellar I try to understand the wine with respect to its origin and seek to respect its needs. Since I see humans as a part of nature, I attempt to give everything back so that the circle is closed. This is the way handcrafted wines are created. And this is what you can taste in our wines.” Franz Weninger

In the 2011 Kékfrankos you will find a lot of herbal and spice notes that can recall the 2002 and 2004 vintages. The Merlot, in the noblest meaning of the word, is light and playful. The darker, richer style of the Pinot Noir was not only the result of the vintage but also of the new Burgundy clones. The Cabernet Sauvignon was born as a truly enchanting big wine in this vintage. The two single-vineyard wines, Frettner and Spern Steiner, will come out in the autumn, together with the full and rich Syrah that evokes the 2009 vintage.
