The single vineyard Bodigraben is 450 meters above sealevel, has 100% orthogneis and is in my own opinion a so called „Grand Cru“. In former times it was just called „the vineyard of poor people“, because it‘s very hard to work on it.
The very steep and stony Bodigraben is divided in north- and southside. The north provides coolness, dark notes, the south provides body and texture. Together they produce a very delicate Blaufränkisch, that stands for the distinctiveness of Neckenmarkt with it‘s special soils.
Aged for 24 month in a single 1200 liter barrel.

"The low-yielding 2015 Güterweg Neckenmarkt Bodigrabenweg (from orthogneiss soils) is generous, pure and floral in its intense but refined, terroir-driven, slightly herbal and super elegant bouquet of ripe cherries and blue berries. This nose is nothing short of fascinating, leading to a silky-textured, finessed palate with very fine tannins and the crystalline acidity and structure of gneiss terroir! This is smooth but not mellow, and the finish is as tart as a sour cherry but also ripe and even lush. A gorgeous Blaufränkisch from a great year with class and style! Picked at 25 hectoliters per hectare on October 16, it was vinified in an open wooden fermenter and then aged in 600-liter domestic oak barrels for 24 months." - Stephan Reinhardt, RobertParker.com
