Anton Iby Blaufrankisch 2010

Anton Iby Blaufrankisch 2010

Sku: 065934

Tasting notes
Radiant, very dark ruby garnet tones with hints of violet and a dark core. The violet color at the rim with the purple notes indicate the youth of the Blaufränkisch while the long legs in the glass reveal its high extract. Pronounced fruit of cherries and blackberries with pepper and spices. Dry in style with mild acidity and juicy tannins, and a long harmonious finish. A typical representative of local Blaufränkisch finished in the traditional style, it is fruity, spicy and inviting.

Wine maker notes
The Iby family, with both immense historical significance and a gleaming future, is one of the premier Blaufränkisch producers in Austria. Since the early 20th century, the Iby family has been cultivating vineyards in the town of Horitschon, and in 1983 Anton and Johanna Iby were among the first growers in Burgenland to establish their own winery. Today Anton M. Iby, the fifth generation, and his father Anton Iby cultivate their old vines at immensely low yields with enviable thought and energy. The direction of the winery is to focus 100% on red wines that express Mittelburgundland’s distinct terroir. Grown in the region’s top vineyards, Dürrau and Hochäcker, their Blaufränkisch is consistently considered one of the top examples from Austria. Iby’s mission is to bring together terroir, power, elegance, and aging potential. Iby’s development and direction towards organic viticulture, paired with old vines, radical yield reductions, and old fashioned handwork in the vineyard, give some of the best representations of the potential of the region.
