Wines Blaufränkisch

Wines Blaufränkisch
Rainer Schnaitmann has been producing wines since 1997 under his own label. His influences stem from strong training at the renowned Geisenheim school, and vineyard work in New Zealand and Alto Adige - and what a marvel he’s made of the Lemberger (Blaufränkisch)! He’s based in the village of Fellbach, in the lesser known wine region of Württemberg near the major industrial city of Stuttgart.

The ‘Steinwiege’ wines exhibit their terroir and grape variety, with great definition and purity. His most famous vineyard is the Fellbacher Lämmler, the top wines are designated ‘Fellbacher Lämmler’, where almond trees were formerly planted. His winemaking is fully biological, although Rainer hasn’t shown an interest in organic certification.

The Blaufränkisch Grape

A varietal, home in Central Europe, particularly Austria where it is the second most popular red-wine variety. In Hungary, the wines produced are rarely exported. Blaufränkisch comes into bud early in the season, ripens late and is very productive. It needs warmth to ripen fully. Blaufränkisch is a deeply coloured wine, fruity, particularly black fruits, and spicy (pepper). If yields are restricted, the wine is more full bodied and merits oak ageing.
