Markus Altenburger 2015 Blaufränkisch Gritschenberg

These are the estate's oldest vines at about 40 years of age and Markus has only one hectare here, but the vineyard is his muse. This wine makes a statement. It certainly has power, but it’s also silky and generous. It has the classic mineral spine found in the best of the Leithaberg wines, but it is also a ripe tannic grip for structure. Only 1200 bottles were produced.
