2016 Moric Reserve Blaufrankish Burgenland

$54.95

This may be Roland Velich’s basic Blaufrankisch, but it’s also his most perfectly rendered. Blended from vines growing in a range of soils across his vineyards, his understanding of terroir is on full display in the harmony of elements. Opulent black fruits on the nose seem to sing with vanilla despite his avoidance of new oak. You can almost taste the sunshine in the ripe blackberry fruit, with sweetness balanced by acidity and a touch of chocolate orange on the lengthy finish.
