The Story

Alcohol: 13,5 %vol
Acidity: 5,7 g/l
Residual sugar: 1,1 g/l

Soil: Clay shales with light gray Dolomite chalk. The fresh water limestone gives the wine a slim-bodied, elegant cool character

Vinification: Spontaneous fermentation in open tanks of 500L. Unfiltered. Aged in barrels for 18 months.

Vineyard: The protected southwest-facing vineyard site, Königsberg, is located north of the Eisenberg. The vines are rooted in soils such as greenschist, dolomite, limestone and shale. They are older than the Penninicum and belong to the Austroalpine Superunit of the Alps. Overall, the soils here are more permeable than those on the Eisenberg and consist of sandy loam with a higher lime content. The vineyards are located at around 350m above sea level. The Blaufränkisch wines here tend to have a fruitier expression than those of the Eisenberg, and they also exude an intense minerality and fine spiciness. Due to the chalky soils, they're feminine, elegant and appealing with an impressive structure.

Vintage 2015

Tasting note:

Dark berries with a lot of depth and complexity – very much spice aromatics. Juicy and good structure with elegant backbone from oak ageing. Beautiful ripe fruit, concentrated and mineral, a palpable minerality and vivid acid structure. Youthful with long-lasting ending.
