Blaufränkisch Leithaberg DAC 2015 (Big Bottle)
0,75 liters; contains sulfites
My red Leithaberg wine comes from the Ried Pratsche on the hill that rises directly behind Oggau from where you have a view over the reed belt to Lake Neusiedl. You also feel the lake here as it is carried by warm winds to rest on leaves and grapes. The mild climate contrasts with the cool limestone and together, they offer exactly the right conditions for puristic, clear, precise Blaufränkisch.
Nothing happens in the cellar that wasn’t done 70 years ago. The aromas from then and now are probably not dissimilar; delicate red fruit, black pepper, a couple of ripe plums and a salty background spread invitingly over the palate.
