Weingut Buchegger, Pinot Noir 2015, Niederösterreich, Austria
Tasting Note: A svelte pinot noir with fruit that will remind you of drinking a fine red Burgundy but at a fraction of the price.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of strawberry, red cherry, red plum and blossom with hints of white nectarine.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied pinot noir delivers elegant, integrated, medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose.
The wine is balanced with forest floor characteristics and just-ripened fruit.
Impress a Burgundy drinker.
Price: $26 (I paid $20)
