EN BLAUFRÄNKISCH KIRCHBERG 07 PML

Blaufränkisch Kirchberg 2007

Dry | 0.75L

The Kirchberg was originally cultivated by the Cistercian monks in 1203. The vineyard faces south East looking out to Lake Neusiedl and basking in its mild Pannonian climate. 2007 was a warmer year and this Blaufränkisch is harmonious and balanced. This wine’s elegant character and impressive density will delight the connoisseur of single vineyard wines.
