  4. Pannobile Red

Paul Achs returned to the family winery in Gols in 1991 after spending time in California where he learned to produce red wines at the highest level of quality. Ninety percent of the production is dedicated to red wine and all 58 acres are farmed biodynamically. Paul Achs wines are characterized by elegance and finesse.

The Parndorfer Platte is a south-facing escarpment of complex soils situated near the villages of Gols and Mönchoff and is the source of Paul Achs’ Pannobile. Here, the diversity of soil combines with a southern exposure and the warm Pannonian climate to give wines of profound expression and longevity.

Pannobile is a 9 member growers' association in the Burgenland village of Gols. The members are dedicated to developing wines of high quality with character typical for the area. A wine labeled “Pannobile” may be either white or red and must be made from local varietals. Pannobile wines are nominated by its members and voted on as a group, not unlike Special Club in Champagne.

Tasting Notes

Paul Achs’ Pannobile is 100% Blaufränkisch selected from his three best vineyards on the Parndorfer escarpment: Ungerberg, Altenberg, Spiegel. Achs was instrumental in the formation of Pannobile, raising the profile of wines produced in the area. Pannobile is aged for 18 months in used 228 liter Burgundian pièce.

Food Pairing

Burgenland’s cuisine is influenced by neighboring Hungary and it’s not unusual to find dishes like goulash or stuffed peppers in the region, all liberally spiced with paprika. Burgenland’s red wines are well-suited to complement these hearty and spicy flavors but offers broad versatility at the table thanks to its firm acidity and savory character.
