Markus Altenburger took over the family winery in 2006 to focus solely on the varieties that best express their terroir in Jois, next to lake Burgenland. Grapes are hand harvested and macerated as whole bunches for 2 weeks. Spontaneously fermented in wooden fermenter. Aged for 12 months in a used 2000l oak barrel. Bottled unfined and unfiltered Markus’ works manages to add a depth and complexity to Blaufrankisch we have nor really seen elsewhere. ‘Cric’ has summer fruits, delicately floral, with an uplifting zippy edge. He describes it as “Our freshest and most elegant limestone-born Blaufränkisch”.
