Blaufränkisch Eisenberg Ried Weinberg

2017
Austria
Südburgenland

Out of a total of the 30 hectares in this vineyard, Wachter-Wiesler farms five, at an elevation ranging from 250-300m above sea-level. With iron-rich clay, the soil characteristics here are quite similar to the the base of the Eisenberg hill. The single-vineyard Weinberg comes from the heart of the vineyard and is a selection of the oldest vines, which average fifty years-old. Wachter made a single 2,300 liter barrel of this wine laden with raspberry fruit and minerals.

"The Eisenberg 2017 Blaufränkisch Ried Weinberg is pure, intense and spicy on the reduced nose that shows blackcurrant aromas along with spicy and lime-green terroir notes. Juicy, round and fine on the palate, with leather notes at this early stage, this is a silky textured and quite charming red with an intense finish with fine tannins and discreet licorice notes."
