2018 Weingut Prieler Johanneshohe Blaufrankisch

Burgenland, Austria

Full of layers of dark fruits and an edge of spice, this is a vibrant organic Blaufrankisch from Weingut Prieler.



About the Wine

The Prieler’s remain committed to the highest quality in both their viticulture and vilification methods. They run their 20 hectare holding organically and take the utmost care at every step of the winemaking journey.

This Blaufrankisch is crafted from a patchwork of vineyards with similar soils - the idea of the wine being to showcase freshness and elegance rather than power and structure. A plummy and dark-fruited wine with hints of spice and tar, layers of interest and a lovely freshness throughout.

About Weingut Prieler

Weingut Prieler is a family run, high quality producer from Burgenland, Austria focussing on Blaufrankisch and Burgundian varieties (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc). North Burgenland is the sunniest region in all of Central Europe, also with low rainfall and a multitude of different soil types. This diversity lends itself perfectly to creating a unique and interesting set of wines that present a compelling picture of the region, told through the eyes of 2nd-generation winemaker Georg Prieler.

The family are very hands on in the vineyard, planting cover crops, rigorously pruning, managing canopies and making multiple passes during picking to ensure optimal conditions are maintained at all times.

A stellar producer flying the flag for Burgenland, Weingut Prieler wines are always thoughtful, sensitive and incredibly well made.

Additional Info

From the Producer

The prologue. The grapes for this wine stem from nine different vineyards, nearly all of which have iron and fossil-rich cambisol soil. My intention with the Johanneshöhe interpretation is to express a particular lightness in Blaufränkisch.

Elegance, drinkability and fruit are the focus while tannin, power and spice remain satisfied in supporting roles. Please don’t understand this wrong. Depth, balance and intensity still have highest priority in Johanneshöhe; they are simply bedded on a more airy foundation.

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
