Buy Paul Achs Blaufrankisch
A straightforward offering from Paul Achs with a fruit driven profile. Cherry and sour cherry with nuances of strawberry seeds and clay/stone character. Slightly darker than the Zweigelt and with subtly fuller tannins due to the nature of Blaufrankisch, but just as smooth and inviting for a second, or dare I say, third glass?

Paul joined the family winery in 1991 after globe-trotting wine making, including California. Within four years, he was awarded Falstaff Winemaker of the Year. Achs now owns 21 hectares and rents 2 hectares– scattered in 40 sites around Gols. Along with Gernot Heinrich, Paul was one of the founding members of the Pannobile Association which is devoted to promoting the best wines from Gols; always made from Zweigelt and Blaufrankisch. Paul embraces the potential of the best cru in Gols to make Blaufrankisch, and in the 2003 vintage introduces a masterful trio of single vineyard Blaufrankisch: Altenberg, Spiegel and Ungerberg. Paul Achs produces wines that are simply impossible to resist– and are quickly defining the benchmark for the region.
