Wine information

The Jagini is a joint effort by Roland Velich and Hannes Schuster , whose family vineyard is located in Zagersdorf. There you will also find the Jagini vineyard, which survived the 1970s, when the single-vine Blaufränkisch vines were replaced on a large scale by Zweigelt in the Lenz-Moser high culture. The Jagini bears vines that are 55 to over 100 years old. Velich and Schuster have been friends for a long time, and Roland Velich had been attracted to the terroir because of the old Blaufränkisch vines. The soil consists of heavy clay and loam on the surface and limestone and sand in the subsoil. In the beginning, the wine was vinified at the Schusters', but in the meantime at Velich. Fermentation took place in open vats, after which the wine spent around four years in wood. Since the 2013 vintage, only used and untoasted 1,500- and 1,600-litre barrels as well as 10-year-old 500-litre barrels made of Austrian and German oak have been used.

Color

dense garnet to brick red

Nose

The 2013 Jagini is a Blaufränkisch of great clarity and elegance, connected to the earth from which it comes, but at the same time ethereally reaching upwards and into the distance. It smells intensely of elderberries, juniper and sour cherries, pencil and graphite, Assam tea, damp forest soil, tar, tobacco as well as leather and has slightly animal notes. The effect is dark, as if coming from a still cool misty landscape.

Palate

On the palate, the wine is on the one hand dense in its deep dark fruit, its firm texture and the amount of extract as well as the silky tannin, at the same time the Blaufränkisch cool with its linear acid structure. The 2013 Jagini is a wine that is still very young, that needs a lot of air, that develops over days and only on the third day of this for a Jagini so special tonic mouthfeel develops with the electrifying minerality stemming from the limestone. A wine with immense potential that demands a large, wide carafe.
