Tinhof - Leithaberg Eisenstadt 2019
Producer: Tinhof
Wine name: Leithaberg Eisenstadt
Classification: DAC Leithaberg
ABV: 14.0

Slightly muted and compacted on the nose, this Blaufränkisch from two vineyards (Fehlmühl, Reisbühl) on the slightly lower lying plains around Eisenstadt has spicy, brambly fruit.

The oak ageing (16 months in large format barrels) has marked the wine a bit – come back in another year or so and it’ll probably be more balanced. But there is a lot to like here: pretty serious structure and grip – nutty grape tannins, loads of dark cherry fruit.
