Moric Blaufrankisch Burgenland Reserve 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2012 Blaufränkisch Burgenland Reserve has a dark purple/ruby color and opens with a lovely pure and intense, concentrated and very deep bouquet of red and dark fruits, crushed stones, leaves and spices. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and strong, but most of all round, smooth, juicy and intense at the moment. It is also fresh, amazingly pure and salty, especially in the finish, which reveals a stunning freshness and - again - an amazing purity. The power of the ripe 2012 vintage - which is comparable here to the 2007 vintage - is very well-dosed and structured and superbly balanced by the lemon-freshness from the Lutzmannsburg limestones, and the very delicate tannins, which seem to roll over the palate. (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.
