Blaufränkisch,grown on limestone rich soils (kalk). Grapes are fully destemmed (not crushed) and undergo spontaneous fermentation in stainless steel tanks for approximately 3 weeks. The wine is then aged on its lees for 18 months in neutral 2000L & 5000L casks prior to bottling. If you light lighter juicier reds and have never tired this then this is well worth a try. 

Notes on the producer

In 2006, Markus took over the family winery in Jois, and to this day solely focuses on the varieties that best express this unique terroir. His approach in the vineyards and cellar has shown a 180-degree change over the last 15 years, and today all of his vineyards are certified organic, now gearing towards biodynamic certification in the coming year. Together with his wife Bernadette and his cellar master Kathrin, Markus tends 13 hectares of vines scattered mainly on two of the Leithaberg appellation's premier single-vineyards, Gritschenberg and Jungenberg.
