A dark ruby-red guise allows a deep gaze into the Edelgraben. Time and aeration are required – at least in a large glass, but preferably in a carafe. With the husky, but pleasant voice of a cavalier baritone, this Blaufränkisch sings of precise, dark-berried fruit, earthy seduction and peppery spice – and easily achieves this over two octaves. Conscious of its unbridled power, it makes a striking and lasting impression, secretly creates itself space, yet with its sensitive deliberation and detailed finesse, it is irritating in a positive fashion.
This Blaufränkisch stems from old vineyards on the Leithaberg (Leitha Mountains) slopes in Breitenbrunn that face southeast toward Neusiedler See (Lake Neusiedl). The soils comprise the fossil-rich limestone, calcareous sandstone, and mica schist that are so typical for the region.
Bottled with conscientious handcraft and great care throughout the entire life cycle.
