Blaufrankisch Eisenberg 'Deutsch Schutzen'

2017
Austria
Südburgenland

New! Starting with the 2017 vintage, Wachter-Wiesler began bottling two village-level wines, offering a middle ground between the Bela-Joska which gives a good idea of Eisenberg generally and the show-stopping single-vineyard wines. The Deutsch Schutzen comes from two vineyards, the Ratschen and the Weinberg. Deutsch Schutzen's soils have green schist in the subsoil, but there is more top soil with clay and loam, giving an openness to the delicate and pretty cherry fruit. 12.5% alcohol. Total sulfur is below 50ppm.

"The Eisenberg 2017 Blaufränkisch Deutsch-Schützen is pure, fresh and cassis-scented on the lemon-fresh nose that reveals black berry rather than cherry aromas. Silky textured, pretty charming and elegant on the palate, this is a refreshing red with fine tannins and a delicate salinity. Pretty accessible already."
