The Instacart guide to blaufrÃ¤nkisch
Red wine is produced all over the world and comes in a wide variety of options. Many have heard of red wines from Italy, Spain, and France, but there's also a red wine that originates in central Europe. Blaufränkisch is a traditional red wine from Austria that is a cross between Blaue Zimmettraube and Weisser Heunisch.
Blaufränkisch's history dates back to the Austro-Hungary empire, and its name first appeared in 1862 at a Vienna exhibition. In Germany, it appeared under the name Lemberger and later in Hungary under the name Kékfrankos. Blaufränkisch has many names under its belt depending on the area in central Europe.
It occupies close to 20,000 acres in Hungary, which is larger than the Austrian land dedicated to growing these grapes. The Burgenland region in Austria is best known for growing the blaufränkisch grape. The grape is the second most well-known grape in Austria, behind the Zweigelt, which is crossed with blaufränkisch and Saint-Laurent. The blaufränkisch grape is also now produced in various parts of the world, such as Washington state, although to a lesser extent.
Austrian blaufränkisch is best grown in cooler areas and its taste is similar to Pinot Noir or Syrah. Its grapes are a bluish-black, large, and V-shaped. It is very demanding of its growing site because it needs a cooler climate for the vineyards to bud early and ripen later with generous yields.
