Info about the wine

The Joiser Jungenberg has been documented as a top Joiser site for over 800 years. The vines face southeast towards the lake, which naturally allows the grapes to ripen earlier. The soil consists of mica slate, overlaid with shell limestone in the lower part. Only the best and oldest Blaufränkisch vines from this site are used for this exceptional red wine.

Info about the expansion

Hand harvest and selection, spontaneous fermentation in wood, 20 months maturation on the lees in 500 litre wooden barrels.

Color

Muted black-red, almost colour-tight to the rim with minimal purple brightening.

Nose

This 2016 Blaufränkisch Ried Jungenberg shows a magnificent nose. It smells of sweet black cherries, pickled blueberries, cassis liqueur, liquid dark chocolate, tar and liquorice. Intermixed with freshly ground black pepper, incense and violet pastilles, compactly framed by the distinctive terroir of the slate and shell limestone on which it is grown. Wild Mediterranean herbs, floral hints and spices such as juniper, cinnamon and clove are only hinted at at this stage due to its youthful compactness.

Palate

On the tongue dense and multilayered, it literally runs down the throat with impressive power and sweetness. One immediately notices its special complexity and elegance. A Blaufränkisch like a thunderbolt that will develop fantastically over the years and has a storage potential until at least 2040.

Food recommendation

At this stage, be sure to decant and serve slightly chilled!
