Weninger Kirchholz Blaufrankisch


“Back in the early 2000s, Franz was experimenting with closures to combar the recent increase in cork taint. He aged a percentage of his wines under screw cap to see how they’re fare, but thanks in part to his vines struggling through organic conversion, the reductive characteristics were unpleasantly noticeable without subtle oxygen ingress. After fifteen years in the cellar, these wines have finally come into their own. We will receive four cases of the 2005 vintage bottled under screw cap. This single vineyard Blaufrankisch comes from one of Franz’s most prized sites. A half meter thick layer of well- draining sandy gravel separates the vines from the loam and clay subsoil. This combination provides the perfect hydrology for supreme quality grapes and as such, Franz has vinified and bottled this wine separately since 2003. The vines are between 45 and 80 years old. The grapes are fermented in foudre for two weeks before being pressed off into neutral puncheons for twenty-two months.” – Juice Imports
