2015 Syrah "Hillside" (Hillinger)

Hillinger, "Hillside" Red, Burgenland, Austria, 2015

{organic} 60% Syrah, 30% Merlot, 10% Zweigelt

PLUM, BLACKBERRY, ANISE AND PIPE TOBACCO

Jeez, how many wines can one guy make? And where can we get more of them? Leo Hillinger's latest offering is this wonderfully fruity and spicy Syrah-based blend. Big, modern, and New-Worldishly familiar in style yet brighter than the average Barossa jam-fest, perhaps due to an injection of vibrant forest fruit courtesy of the Zweigelt grape, Austria's signature red variety. An exemplar of structure and balanced fruit.

Serving Suggestion: Barbecued backbones w/ a sweet sauce of crushed pineapple & good, thick ketchup. Smoky red & yellow peppers with Beecher's cheddar.
