A la Carte - The best Leithaberg DAC white 2012 Leithaberg DAC Pinot Blanc


"Youthful colour, multi-layered bouquet, mix of melon, pear, yellow apple, fine spice on the palate, close-knit wine, good length and delicate grapefruit on the finish."

Decanter - Expert's Choice Blaufränkisch 2009 Leithaberg DAC Blaufränkisch

18/20 (93/100)

Takes some coaxing to bring out the violet and raspberry bouquet. But complex palate from the start. Other producers have trailed off but Prieler is still a clear frontrunner: clarety restraint, good fruit and length.

Martin Lam, food and wine consultant

"Funky nose with perfumed aromatics and
a savoury element. Palate is quite soft and
generous with lots of minerality."

100% Blind - Tasted Journal 2011 Leithaberg DAC Blaufränkisch 

Markus Del Monego MW

"Dark purple red with violet hue. Restrained fruit and overall closed character, but excellent structure on the palate. A promising wine for the future."

Wine Enthusiast: Anne Krebiehl 2010 Leithaberg DAC Blaufränkisch


Red cherry fruit, with edges of white pepper, plays charmingly on both the nose and palate. The svelte figure of the wine belies its depth: this has subtle, Burgundian virtues and earthy undertones that provoke stimulating conversation and thought. An ideal accompaniment for subtle, nuanced dishes or a really good book.
