Kalkofen 2017

Surrounded by eighteenth-century mulberry trees, this south-facing site lies at an elevation of 340 meters above sea level. It is located in Ritzing, making it the most westerly vineyard of Central Burgenland. Climatically it is our coolest site; the soil and the southern orientation, however, provide warmth. In former times quicklime was produced here, which accounts for the high pH level in the soil.

A wine that challenges the palate - invigorating and youthful. A hint of bright berry fruit. The tannins of this Blaufränkisch become more delicate. They intermingle with the acidity and in this way produce a vibrating, almost electrifying finish. This combination is grippy on the palate and reminiscent of chalk dust.
