2016 vintage: great wines and small yields

Good things come in small packages! Winemaking is a never-ending learning process that never fails to keep the suspense alive. Take, for example, last year’s unusually fickle weather that swept across the vineyards from Lake Neusiedl all the way to Southern Burgenland. The 2016 vintage was a source of much trepidation for Burgenland’s winemakers, who had to put in a great deal of work and were ultimately rewarded with only small yields. Still, the harvest season in late summer went quite smoothly thanks to perfectly ripe and healthy grapes, resulting in fruity red wines full of complexity and structure.
