Ried MARIENTHAL Blaufränkisch 2020 BIO


Quality wine; 0,75 litre; contains sulphites

You know the story of Marienthal and its legendary Blaufränkisch. What you might not know is that we have also had Blaufränkisch vines in the vineyard for three decades - namely where the chalk plateau slopes slightly towards Oggau. However, my father had to replant his part of the vineyard at that time, and since it is not possible to reproduce the potential of the vineyard with young vines, he and later my sister and I waited until 2011. Since then, there is our Blaufränkisch Marienthal. Clear as a bell, with aromas in which you can find forest soil and sour cherries, pepper and a fine minerality. And in which acidity, strength, tannin and fruit sweetness slowly adjust to each other and pave the way for a long future.
