The 'Felsen I' comes from a special parcel on the foothills of the 'Leithaberg' mountain range. It's one of Christian's rockiest plots and gives the perfect conditions for a lean, salty Blaufränkisch. This vintage reminds us a little bit of high quality Syrah from the Northern Rhône or perhaps structured Crus Beaujolais grown on granite or schist. Regardless, this is Blaufränkisch as close to perfection as it can be — something that proves that this variety entered the Hall of Fame of the world's great terroir grapes.
Vinification Method: Grapes are hand harvested, destemmed, and crushed by foot. The juice ferments in large barrels with indigenous yeast and no racking. It spends 2 years aging in 500 to 1500-liter barrels and is bottled without fining or filtering and no addition of sulfur.
