The Story

Alcohol: 13,5%
Acidity: 5,9 g/l
Residual sugar: 1,0 g/l

Origin: Szapary vineyard in Eisneberg

Szapary is a striking vineyard with barren slate soils at an altitude of 300m to 400m. It is the steepest and, consequently, the most labour-intensive part of the Eisenberg. The bare slate is covered only by some rocky brown earth. Oxidised veins of iron can be found underneath. As Szapary is south-west oriented, it enjoys long exposure time to sunshine. The wines are very fruity and dominated by filigree and red fruit tones and underscored by confident minerality on the palate. They usually present a very fine structure and a salty, spicy finish.

Eisenberg is the name of the mountain that rises 415 meters high, looking to the gentle rolling hills of the Südburgenland. It is also the name of the village nestled on the slope and at the foot of the mountain.

The name goes back to the Iron Age (800-15 BC), and indeed a high iron content can be found in the soil.

The celts, who inhabited the area thousands of years ago, obtained iron ore here on a large scale and worked it into high-quality Ferrum Noricum - for which they found many customers in the emerging Roman Empire. With one of the first trademarks in the world, the celts were so skilled at trade, that they even developed into a wealthy iron elite and lived most likely in what is now the village of Burg. interestingly, the slag, a residual product of iron production, can still be found in for - ests of the area and indicates the locations of the individual iron furnaces.

For more than a century, the typical Blaufränkisch wines from Südburgenland have been known also as "Eisenberger". In 2010, when the area became known, through the Austrian wine law, as an origin with regionally typical wines, the name of the wine itself was also defined, Eisenberg DAC.
