Elektra 2020 — Blaufränkisch


A Wine That

shows what Blaufränkisch can do when handled delicately. Think earthy, forest flavours with fresh blackcurrants, and a spicy undertone — like a ruler running straight through the wine. Delicious and moreish, evolving over time, this is the kind of wine you want to take your timming getting to know. But at the same time, it's just so drinkable... which epitomises the new wave of fine wines.

Blaufränkisch 'Elektra' - 2020
















Where and How?

This comes from different parcels on the Leithaberg mountain range, on limestone and slate soils, farmed biodynamically.
The fruit was hand destemmed, then left to naturally ferment for two weeks of maceration, and aged in old 500L barrels — very simple old-school winemaking, while verging on the low-intervention side, like the Elektra white.

The Winemaker: Nittnaus

The Nittnaus family of Burgenland, Austria, is family of renegades — but respectful renegades. They might have thrown the rulebooks out of the window, but it hasn’t just been for the sake of doing so, but rather to see if they could improve the way the rulebook had been written in the first place. The sons of Anita and Hans Nittnaus, Martin and Andi, are joined by their cousin, Lydia, in their quest to take their parents’ work one step further. Together, this trio is carving their own path, adding another dimension to the work already achieved by their family. And in doing so, it’s like they’ve forged a new genre for their region — they are the punk trio to their family’s rock band.
“We work with well-established grape varieties — Grüner Veltliner and Blaufränkisch — but give them a new perspective through our vision. Manila is about subversion, and the beauty of subversion.”
