Moric Blaufrankisch Burgenland Alte Reben Neckenmarkt 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate) :Very dark-colored the 2011 Blaufränkisch Neckenmarkter Alte Reben starts somewhat untamed and reductive on the floral nose, but very concentrated and intense, with lime and crushed slate aromas giving it a purity that is rare in the warm 2011 vintage, when it was important not to pick too overripe (Roland Velich). With more time on the air, the wine reveals black and red currant aromas, wild black and blue berries along with juniper and leafy flavors. Also dried blossoms here and a coolish vein like in the famous 2006. The attack on the palate is quite smooth, revealing ripe and concentrated dark berry aromas (cassis, blue and black berries) along with heathy flavors, but it is also fresh and silky with lingering saltiness. The tannins are firm and structured, but absolutely fine and ripe. Its a great union of ripe tannins, a crystalline acidity and the salty/mineral taste of wet stones with the ripe and intense fruit giving the sex appeal. Very long and fresh, very stable, A great, big and massive wine again, but not heavy at all. (Jun 2016)

Moric:
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.
