Gernot Heinrich

When people think Austrian wines, they invariably think “white wine.” But Burgenland, located at the far eastern edge of Austria on the banks of Lake Neusiedler, is primarily red wine country.

The limestone hills surrounding the lake are the ideal conditions for indigenous red grape varieties like zweigelt, saint-laurent, and blaufränkisch.

Gernot and Heike Heinrich are a dynamic winemaking couple. In Gols, they use modern facilities to produce a range of reds and whites of the highest quality. Their reds, which form the bulk of their output, are among the finest in Austria.

The vineyards have always been organic, based on their belief that natural farming yields the finest grapes. Across the board, Heinrich’s reds are distinguished by the brightness of their fruit and their sumptuous, velvety textures. The blaufränkisch, often compared to gamay, combines the fragrance of syrah spices with the drinkability of a great pinot. Zweigelt has a similar feel, yet offers more structure. Saint Laurent, always the most complex of the three, can be seen as the “spicy” cousin of a pretty Côte de Beaune rouge.

The blaufränkisch and the Saint Laurent are available as specialty wines at the SAQ.

Fred Loimer

When people think Austrian wines, they invariably think “white wine.”

For too long, Austria’s wine production has been almost entiely consumed by their domestic market. But today, guided by a new generation of winemakers, the Austrian wine industry is looking beyond its borders.

And they have a lot to offer. The younger generation inherited both fabulous terroirs and the expertise that comes from hundreds of years of winemaking tradition. Fred Loimer is one of the leaders of Austria’s new generation of winemakers.

With over forty hectares of vineyards which have been grown biodynamic since 2005, the winery produces a suite of wines focussing on Austria’s core varieties: grüner veltliner and riesling. The bottlings from their troika of grand cru sites—Spiegel, Käferberg, and Seeberg—can rival the depth and definition of the world’s greatest white wines. Vintage upon vintage, Fred Loimer makes exceptional top cuvées Lois and Lenz. But the true mark of a great winemaker is predicated upon their ability to produce impeccable entry-level wines, as can be tasted in Loimer’s generic Kamptal wines.
