In Greataunt Emma Schürmann’s little vineyard – the best site on Eisenberg – Blaufränkisch grapes have grown for 45 years on a blue and green slate substratum beneath heavily calcareous clayey loamy soil. What the land and its people bring forth on this steep southern slope has awakened the desire in us to tap these resources too.
The rocky subsoil allows good drainage. This results in freshness and bright fruit; the clay in the topsoil imparts a delicate sweetness and body. The view from the steep site adds lightness to the wine. An elegant Blaufränkisch with plenty of finesse.
