2020 Claus Preisinger Blaufrankisch

Regular price $39.00

The Blaufränkisch grapes are grown on limestone ‘Kalkstein’ soils, and mainly come from the Leithaberg site, which gives the wine a lifted, mineral profile. The grapes spent 10 days on the skins and is semi-carbonically fermented in inox tanks. The wine is then aged in 3000 litre and 500-litre oak barrels.

A surfer at heart, Claus Preisinger has been making wine on the north shore of Lake Neusiedl in the Burgenland town of Gols since 2002. He converted the vineyards and winery to biodynamic production in 2006 and is Respekt Biodyn certified. Claus vinifies mostly domestic grape varieties such as Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt, Grüner Veltliner and St. Laurent,  supplemented by Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc from both the west and east sides of Lake Neusiedl. Claus does not use any cultivated yeast, and only very slight or no dosing of sulphur dioxide. He ages many of his wines in amphora rather than wooden barrels, which he views as a conscious step back, a reduction to the essential - the grape and the soil. Reduction, minimalism and a free spirit are the guiding themes of Claus Preisinger.
