Hand-picked Blaufränkisch from our best vineyards: Rosenberg, Altenberg & Ungerberg. Dogma refers to the manifest of the Danish group of directors led by Lars von Trier and Thomas Vinterberg who, by focusing on the raw material and reducing their films to the essential, created uproar in the movie scene. We tried to translate their so-called “vow of chastity” consistently and uncompromisingly into wine.
Which means: no technical ingenuity, dramaturgical predictability, illusions and special effects. Instead, just biodynamically cultivated grape material, spontaneous fermentation and authenticity. And: no temperature control, filtering or addition of sulphites.
Apropos SO2: If everything goes well, wines without sulphites are a little bit like children. Candid, honest, welcoming and without double-talk, they express a captivating naturalness.
Fleshy and flowery, some spices and dark berries, peppercorns and cherries - however, the flavours are in constant flux. And why not? Our Blaufränkisch Dogma is alive and versatile, a perpetual adventure for us and for you. Crisp and vital acidity calls the tune on the palate which is balanced by a smooth and tightly meshed texture. - Gerhard Pittnauer
