James Suckling, 94 Points 

"Plenty of blackberry and licorice aromas are married to excellent ripeness on the palate. However, this impressive blaufrankisch remains quite light and bright. Very good integration of fruit and smoky oak. Long and crisp mineral finish. From organically grown grapes. Drink or hold." 

Wine Enthusiast, 94 Points 

"Crunchy black cherry, crushed blackberry and a wealth of blueberries unite into a seductive, dark-fruited nose in this wine. The palate just carries on with this brooding, fruitful richness but it also adds pristine freshness. This is sleek and elegant where tannins are concerned and altogether this is a picture of dark, rich fruit presented with utter poise." 

Wine Advocate, 92 Points 

"Prieler’s 2018 Blaufränkisch Leithaberg comes from the Ried Pratschweingarten in Oggau, which is located next to the Marienthal and also on limestone soils. Macerated with whole berries for 16 days and aged in a large stück oak vat for 16 months, the press wine was included due to the fact that the tannins were perfectly ripe. The dark ruby-colored wine opens with a deep, pure, fresh and concentrated bouquet of ripe dark berries, black tea and crushed stones. Silky, pure and fresh on the palate, this is a vivacious and finessed Blaufränkisch with perfectly ripe and mellow tannins and a clear, fresh, salty and aromatic finish. A fabulous wine at this price point."
