Moric Blaufränkisch 2011
"Now firmly established as the leader in the stylistic re-fashioning of Blaufrankisch, following a model more Burgundian than Bordelaise, Moric has produced a wine that is the very picture and spirit of the wonderfully elegant 07er with the added benefit of a couple years more experience with the vines, and a couple amore parcels to pick from. No new wood, no small wood. Very bright cherry fruit, finely woven tannins and a piquant acidity, long and elegant." -Importer
Roland Velich's Moric winery has revolutionized the world of Blaufrankisch wines. A niche wine maker producing less than 2,500 cases of their most basic wine (the regular Blaufrankisch), and fewer than 700 cases of the celebrated Neckenmarkt and Alte Reben Blaufrankisch wines, Moric has nonetheless received wide acclaim. Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate awarded Moric the most points ever received by an Austrian wine.
