Moric Blaufränkisch 2007
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.
Pure finesse, though it also tastes like something out of a completely different era. Elegant perfume quality to the cherry and other berry fruit, with many layers of structure and intense flavor (spice, minerals, cocoa) on such a deceptively light seeming red. I can't wait to get a hold of more.
