WTN: Strohmeier Rot#6 Steirland...(short/boring)

by TomHill » Tue Nov 27, 2018 2:52 pm

Found this unusual red at Gommer's Mid-Town, so had to try it:
1. Strohmeier Rot#6 Steirland/Austria (Trauben Liebe un Zeit; 12%; 25% BlauerWildbacher/75% Zweigelt; Jenny & Francois Slctn; www.JennyAndFrancois.com; Monika Caha Slctn) NV (L0515): Dark color; very strong plummy/Mourv-like/boysenberry/black cherry cola rather earthy/loamy/bit coarse nose; rather soft/flat quite earthy/loamy/rustic/coarse strong plummy/Mourv-like/boysenberry/black cherry cola flavor w/ light coarse tannins; med. rather soft/flat bit metallic/tangy strong plummy/Mourv-like/boysenberry rather earthy/loamy/coarse finish w/ light soft/coarse tannins; lots of earthy/plummy character of Zweigelt w/ a coarseness from the BlauerWildbacher; reminds a lot of Lodi AlicanteBouschet; rather interestin if rustic/coarse red; pricey at $34.00 (GomersMT)

A wee BloodyPulpit:
1. BlauerWildbacher is a vinifera variety native to Styria in Austria. Apparently related to Blaufrankisch but started as a seedling from GouaisBlanche. BlauerWildbacher is the grape most used in making Schilcher wine, a still-fermenting/fizzy/very acidic rose from Styria. Very much an acquired taste..which, thru hard/diligent work, I acquired. Clearly a grape that should be being planted all up&down the coast of Calif.
