Parker review

We love the nice description of  Stephan Reinhardt. Thanks. 2013 Weninger Blaufränkisch Kalkofen 93 From calcareous Eurendsina soils, the 2013 Blaufränkisch Kalkofen is a remarkably fine red. Fermented on the skins for two weeks and aged for 20 months in 500-liter barrels, this dark-colored red offers a beautifully elegant bouquet of perfectly ripe dark berries […]

Hochäcker Boden

In former times quicklime was produced here, […]

The gneiss and mica schist, which are present all the […]
