Classic Blaufrankisch wines are deep colored, medium-bodied reds with intensive black-fruit aromas, soft bitterness and spicy aftertaste.
Burgenland is a large wine-producing region on the eastern border of Austria. Despite the country's image as the producer of some of the world's finest white wines, Austria is also home to a thriving red wine culture: Burgenland, with its sunny, continental summers, is the country's key red wine region, with its wines based mainly on the Blaufränkisch and Zweigelt grape varieties.    The region occupies a narrow strip of land that runs from the Danube River down to Steiermark in the south. On its eastern side is the border with Hungary, and to the west lies the most eastern foothills of the Alps. Steiermark aside, Burgenland is one of Austria's southernmost wine regions, and topographically is more aligned with Hungary than with much of the rest of Austria.   Burgenland is home to four DAC appellations: from north to south; Neusiedlersee, Leithaberg, Mittelburgenland and Eisenberg. Within each of these zones, any wines which do not conform to the particular classification are labeled with the Burgenland appellation.   Burgenland's Lake Neusiedl (Neusiedlersee) is one of the viticultural focus points of the region. It stores summer heat from the Pannonian Plain, an expansive, warm area which covers much of Hungary and eastern Austria, effectively lengthening the ripening season into autumn.   In contrast to the other Burgenland DACs all of the wines of Leithaberg DAC qualify. Red wines must be made predominantly with Blaufränkisch. White grape varieties are Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Neuberger and Grüner Veltliner, either varietally or as a blend.    Mittelburgenland, south of the Neusiedlersee, is perhaps the most notable of Burgenland's red wine regions. The spicy red wines made here from Blaufränkisch have garnered the region its own DAC title, and the variety accounts for more than half of all vineyard land in the region.
