Wenzel Blaufrankisch Aus dem Kalk 2020
Aus dem Kalk literally means from the chalk. The Blaufrankisch grapes for this wine came from three different vineyards planted in limestone soils from the flatter parts of the chain of hills near the town of Rust (pronounced "roost".) The weathered limestone is interspersed with layers of loam in the surface-soil and gives the wine it's undisputed miineral qualities and high toned aromatics. Native yeast. 20% whole cluster fermentation and 20% carbonic maceration add additional layers of fruit and heady aromatics. 18 months in large old Austrian casks. Unfiltered and minimal sulphur additions.
An elegant, Burgundian style of Blaufrankisch!
