Hofkellerei des Fursten von Liechtenstein Leithaberg DAC 2021

Hofkellerei des Fursten von Liechtenstein Leithaberg has a lot of structure, elegance and that certain something extra.

100% Blaufränkisch. The fruit comes from what is probably the best Burgundy site in St. Margarethen. The soil has high shell limestone and quartz content. The nearby Lake Neusiedl reflects sunlight into the gentle slopes and ensures that this premium Blaufränkisch is ripe at the right time.

Selective hand-picking from organically managed vineyards. Partly spontaneous, very gentle fermentation in 500L barrels. Careful ageing in the 500-year-old cellars of the Hofkellerei.
