Uwe Schiefer's precise 'Burgundian'-styled Blaufränkisch have become a prototype of the Austrian avant-garde, and none more so than his expressive, lithe Eisenberg cuvees. Vom Blauen Schiefer, or "from blue schist", is a blend of Estate vineyards on the slopes of the majestic Eiseberg hill. Schiefer's hillside vines here are rooted in a unique green-blue slate with veins of iron, which, along with the high altitude and cool climate here on the Hungarian border, makes for some of the most precise and mineral Blaufränkisch we have tasted. This 2015 was hand harvested and naturally fermented before maturing for two years on lees in large, mature oak vessels. Bottled without fining of filtration. A stunning nose of spices, licorice and a hint of graphite. A dark and dangerous red that combines warmth with great freshness. The moderately dry tannins drive the long peppery finish. 92-93 points, JamesSuckling.com

    Only negative was email confirmation of order, confirmation of dispatch and invoice were all sent as consecutive emails 2 days after delivery which meant I was not sure the order had been received till it arrived.
