Kékfrankos/ Blaufränkisch 2015
Limited edition, recommended for fans of native tastes!
Elegant, rich and well-poised Blaufränkisch with lovely varietal notes. Clear, deep and lively from the opening aromas all the way to the long finish.
The trademark of the Blaufränkisch is the ripe black sour-cherry, which is enriched with gentle barrel spices of hazelnut, chocolate and coffee.
This wine is perfect also for long bottle ageing.
Recommended with spicy but not too heavy meat dishes, or even just for itself, brooding in small sips.
Excellent, extremely sunny, hot summer with a couple of heat alerts, but the vines were not frightened. We started the harvest on the 1st of September and the ideal, warm, dry weather lasted till the middle of October. The harvested grape was harmonic, well-balanced and concentrated, the wine became fresh and lively in colour.
