Blaufränkisch 'Riedencuvée' 2015

An Outstanding Vintage

Plenty of sun, sufficient rainfall, ripe and healthy grapes ... the wine year 2015 was a particular good one, especially for the Mittelburgenland wine-growing region. Perceptible in the Blaufränkisch 'Riedencuvée' from wine-grower Tesch, which combines 4 different top locations of the vineyard.

The cuvée has been aging in 500 litres wooden barrels for 18 months to achieve its maturity. You can obtain the Riedencuvée in our hotel in different large bottles: 3 l, 12 l and 18 l.
