Blaufränkisch, “Reid Neusiedler Lange Ohn”, Leithaberg
The Lange Ohn vineyard is situated southeast of Jois (see above), closer to Lake Neusiedl’s northern edge. This pure-south-exposed site of clay and limestone produces a rich, round Blaufränkisch, with red, warm-toned fruit and broad texture. This spends 18 months in used 500-liter Stockingers before being bottled with minimal sulfur, and it should evolve beautifully over the coming 15 to 20 year.
About Anita & Hans Nittnaus
Nittnaus’ cellar practices serve to highlight the energetic and lovely character of their abundantly healthy fruit: they employ only spontaneous fermentations; and, for aging, they favor 500-liter Stockinger casks, whose tight-grained, low-toast, low-impact construction allows for maximal expressiveness and facilitates ultra-modest sulfur additions.Learn more
