Despite being in a warmer climate, the Burgenland Pinot Noirs always seem to follow more of a French style (power of suggestion, perhaps?), and the Meinklang drinks like a quality 'basic' Burgundy. Savory cherry skins and hints of earthy red fruits start on the aroma, with perhaps a bit of New World style sweeter red fruit coming through as it opens up, but overall staying very savory. The palate isn't as acidic as most Burgundies, and some would say that's to it's benefit as it takes some of the harsher edges off the higher toned red fruit character. There is a softer mouthfeel behind the cranberry and Bing cherry, allowing some of the more subtler herb and savory earth flavors through. A great deal for Pinot Noir no matter where it came from!
