A cloud of reduction still obscures the primary fruit on the nose of this wine. The palate brims with easy cherry fruit that is far juicier than the nose suggests. It's a lovely, fresh-faced red that's light but dense, toned but fruit-driven, with a tangy finish. ANNE KREBIEHL MW
Score: 90 points -- Wine Enthusiast, 2018
The harmonious unification of two worlds - the east and west side of the Neusiedler See (Lake Neusiedl). This autochthon variety is exemplary for Burgenland and feels just as comfortable in the limestone and schist of the Leithaberg (Leitha Mountains) as it does on the sandy loam on the south escarpment of the Parndorfer Platte (Parndorfer Plain). Bottled with conscientious handcraft and great care throughout the entire life cycle. Organic cultivation of the vineyards. Handpicked from mid-September to the beginning of October. Spontaneous fermentation, two weeks maceration on the skins in wooden fermentation vat and steel tank, 18 months maturation in wooden vats and in used 500-litre oak barrels. 100% Blaufränkisch • 12.5% vol. • 6.4 g/l acidity • 1.0 g/l residual sugar • bottle size (l): 0.75 - Bottled mid-May 2018.
