Neckenmarkt the Mittelburgenland
The vineyards in Neckenmarkt in Mittelburgenland, which include premium sites like Hochberg and Rabenkropf, are cultivated according to the most rigourous quality criteria. Mild weather conditions, plenty of sunshine and loamy soils featuring slate and shell limestone are ideal prerequisites for growing world-class Blaufränkisch and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. Here, both classic Blaufränkisch products and the two renowned offerings, Aristos, a blend of Blaufränkisch and Cabernet Sauvignon, and Rabenkropf, a highly-awarded Blaufränkisch varietal wine, are sourced. A rarity is Rabenkropf Privat, another single-varietal Blaufränkisch, which has been aged in new small oak barrels for four years and already suggests a great future.
