A Superb multidimensional food companion with enormous charm.

Gabarinza, meaning ”cleared forest,” is often cited as one of Austria”s greatest red wine vineyards. This historic cru is perched along a promontory of magnesium-rich sandy loam with an ideal exposition facing Lake Neusidl. Gernot Heinrich”s parcel is planted to 60% Zweigelt, 30% Blaufrankisch and 10% Merlot and results in a multi-layered wine of equal density and subtlety.

Other text
Early vintages were powerful and boldly tannic, aged primarily in new barriques, however, over the past decade the intensity of vineyard work has become more critical to the development of the wines. Hence, use of new barrels in the cellar has become modest. The new, ultra-modern winery, completed in 2002, provides the freedom of space and the tools to ensure that the fruit is translated into wines that are powerful, yet without hard edges - complex, yet delicate. The winery is dedicated to promoting elite examples of classic varietals from the area like Zweigelt, St. Laurent and Blaufrankisch. As each year passes, the red wines of Austria become more refined and the winemakers more adept. These may still be foreign sounding to the US market; however, it is clear the quality of the wines produced here will need no special translation to be appreciated.

Food pairing
Pair with mushroom-crusted lamb chops, grilled pork with sundried tomatoes, or chicken cacciatore.

Producer
Gernot and Heike Heinrich founded their winery in 1990 with 2 ½ acres of vineyard purchased from Gernot”s family. His early work in the family winery, like most of that generation, was purely an agricultural pursuit with goals more related to quantity production. Gernot”s parents had wished their son would choose a different path, because unlike him, they could not see the potential for great wines to be produced from this area. Just over a decade later, the Heinrich”s were recognized with the prestigious Falstaff ”Winemaker of the Year” award. The philosophy at the winery is as transparent and pure as their wines. Their initial challenges were no comparison to the joy and some measure of freedom it gave Gernot & Heike to make a fresh start for the area. That joy and bravery still drives them both today, as they look across Lake Neusiedl to Leithaberg for their next challenge.
