Blaufrankisch 'Johanneshohe' Weingut Prieler

Located on a beautiful farm in Schützen, Weingut Prieler’s estate vineyards lay between the Leithagebirge, the last outpost of the eastern Alps that protect the vines from western winds, and Lake Neusidl, which helps to moderate hot temperatures from the Pannonian Plain.  

As is the case with many family farms; the land was originally dedicated to plantings of fruits and vegetables, grains and raising animals. Grape growing was always a part of this, and in the 1950s, Georg Prieler Sr. started to focus more on wine. In 1972, Irmgard and Engelbert Prieler made the decision to shift the entire focus of the farm to wine production.  With special attention on Blaufränkisch and Burgundian varieties. In 2005, they were joined by their son Georg, who now oversees the 22 hectares of vineyards.  

Georg’s careful attention to detail and work in the vineyard employs natural approaches to pest management, cover crops and maintaining healthy soils. These, among other low-intervention practices are the basis for creating the incredible wines we enjoy from this benchmark producer today. Prieler has been farming organically since 2015 and 2016, produced their first wines with official organic certification.

They are now in the process of converting to Respekt certified Biodynamic farming, joining like-minded producers in the area. 

The grapes for this wine stem from nine different vineyards, nearly all of which have iron and fossil-rich cambisol soil.

The intention with the Johanneshöhe interpretation is to express a particular lightness in Blaufränkisch. Elegance, drinkability and fruit are the focus while tannin, power and spice remain satisfied in supporting roles. Please don’t understand this wrong. Depth, balance and intensity still have highest priority in Johanneshöhe; they are simply bedded on a more airy foundation.
Taste: A refined expression of Blaufränkisch, filled with tart and ripe dark fruit: boysenberry, blackberries, damson plums, and black cherry. The fruit fills the nose and follows onto the palate. Behind the fruit are subtle notes of black pepper, star anise and dried, dusty earth. The wine is dry, medium bodied, with finely integrated tannins and a bright, refreshing finish.
Cellaring Potential: Drink now or age 6+ years
Food Matching: An ideal wine for barbecued meats, grilled eggplant or portobello mushrooms
