Claus Preisinger

2021 Blau Kalkstein

Regular price

Since his first vintage in 2000, Claus Preisinger has gone on to become one of the most iconic and sought after producers from the Burgenland region in Austria.
Using a range of techniques, homeopathic teas and compost from cattle and horses, Claus adheres to strict biodynamic principles, and his vineyards have been certified biodynamic since 2009. The name for this 100% Blaufränkisch comes from the limestone 'Kalkstein' soils upon which many of the vines grow, which gives the wines a lifted minerality. After 10 days on skins and semi-carbonic maceration, the wine is aged in large format oak barrels until bottling. It's fresh and light, but with a vibrant depth of Juicy dark berries, cherry, a light spice and a very pleasant subtle savoury character. We don't see nearly enough Blau in Australia, and this is an absolute gem!
