This wine takes its name from the grape variety. Lemberger/Kekfrankos are synonyms from surrounding countries. Believed to originate in modern day Austria’s Mittelburgenland region, of the indigenous varieties, the late-ripening Blaufrankisch is not very demanding when it comes to soil. It tolerates chalky soils. But the truth is that it prospers best in deep, fertile loess-clay soils. Typical Austrian Blaufrankisch shows a restrained, old world style.
