It is the leading variety in Südburgenland (Eisenberg), Mittelburgenland (Blaufränkischland) and at Leithaberg. These regions deliver origin-typical DAC-wines. In Niederösterreich, the area of Carnuntum is also known for its excellent Blaufränkisch wines. The variety is highly demanding of its vineyard site. Coulure easily occurs if the weather is cool during the flowering period.
Wine: The typical palate of this late ripening variety is characterized by deep wood berry or cherry tones, and reveals its characteristic acidity. Blaufränkisch can yield wines with dense structure and prominent tannins. The wines are often impetuous in their youth, but develop velvety facets when sufficiently ripe. Fuller, stronger versions have good ageing potential.
