Title Story Ausgabe/Jahr
Wine Enthusiast: Roger Voss 90 Prieler 2008 Blaufränkisch (Leithaberg)
The initial impression is of black fruit, chocolate and coffee flavors. These delicious tastes are supported by its intense tannins and juicy acidity. Age this elegant Blaufränkisch for another two years. Imported by Michael Skurnik.

The Independent: Anthony Rose ……If the grüners were an eye-opener, they loved the reds, never having encountered the blaufränkish, St Laurent or zweigelt grapes before. We all loved the bright, peppery fruit of the 2008 Prieler Blaufränkish Leithaberg….  2011

Financial Times – Jancis Robinson A new Austrian Empire?

 

………….But the grape variety that is probably most likely to put Austrian reds on the map is Blaufränkisch, known as Kékfrankos over the border in Hungary, and Lemberger in southern Germany and Washington state. It has the most attractive, and currently fashionable, combination of medium rather than full body, a refreshing aroma, and the ability to transmit quite subtle differences in terroir with precision – in Austrian anyway. The greatest concentration of fascinating Blaufränkisch is in Burgenland, with the wine produced in Leithaberg on the western shore of the Neusiedlersee being so distinctively mineral-soaked that it has earned its own special appellation.

 

Prieler Blaufränkisch 2008 Leithaberg 17 Drink 2011-2017
Leithaberg is one of the DACs. Haunting nose with real depth and intensity. Limestone and minerally and chewy. Lots to chew on here! Together.
Beginning, middle and end. As much terroir as in Achleiten! 13% Vol.
