LOOP LINE TASTING NOTES | Prieler's Blaufrankisch Leithaberg wine comes from the Ried Pratsche on the hill that rises directly behind Oggau from where you have a view over the reed belt to Lake Neusiedl. You also feel the lake here as it is carried by warm winds to rest on leaves and grapes. The mild climate contrasts with the cool limestone and together, they offer exactly the right conditions for puristic, clear, precise Blaufränkisch.

Vineyards are on mica-schist and marine limestone soils. Resulting harvest undergoes temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel, 20 months maturation in used small oak barrels and large wooden casks. Certified Organic wine.

Nothing happens in the cellar that wasn’t done 70 years ago. The aromas from then and now are probably not dissimilar; delicate red fruit, black pepper, a couple of ripe plums and a salty background spread invitingly over the palate.

This lively expression of Blaufränkisch is dry, medium bodied, with mouth-watering acidity and firm, integrated tannins. The fruit characteristic is tart and ripe black and red cherry, black berries, red currant and damson plums. The fruit is complemented by notes of rich potting soil, smoke, saline, black pepper spice, and an underlying purple florality. The length is long and finish is fresh.
