Wine maker notes
The Blaufrankisch Leithaberg is a selection of older vines on the Leitha hills, located in Winden, Jois and Breitenbrunn. Leithaberg is a new DAC as of 2009 on the western shore of Lake Neusidl for both white and red wines, the reds being based on Blaufrankisch (minimum 85%). Both red and white wines from the Leithaberg posses a strong mineral character owed to limestone-rich soils. Smack your lips after you sip the wine, they will taste of salt. The Blaufrankisch grapes were hand harvested in October. Following selection in the vineyards and the winery, they were processed according to the gravity principle without pumps. Spontaneous fermentation occurred in barrels and went through punchdown maceration for 4-5 weeks. The wine was then matured for 18 months in 500 liter French oak barrels.

Food pairing
The smokiness and rich fruit profile of this wine make it an excellent pairing for barbecued ribs, Peking duck, or grilled lamb chops.
