Moric Blaufrankisch Austria 2012
Blaufrankisch is a native red grape variety from Austria, that some call an exotic Pinot Noir. This 2012 Moric Blaufrankisch has hints of vanilla and smoke with underlining flavors of fresh dark berries. On the palate, the berry notes are accented by layers of salinity and wet stone. This displays some real depth and density with a stunning aromatic nose.
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.
