Blaufränkisch: Not Just another Pretty Face

Austria may be considered white wine territory, but it boasts a variety of popular and highly esteemed red varietals, too. Consider Blaufränkisch, the dark ruby grape that produces bright-but-robust red wines. And though its native home is Austria, the grape is also found in the cool vineyards of upstate New York’s Finger Lakes. You’ll find both unoaked and oaked versions of this wine, with oaked specimens varying in their treatment-some oaked versions are aged in older barrels, while some are aged in young barrels that impart more flavor and structure onto the wine. The unoaked versions, like those coming from the Burgenland’s venerable Meinklang Winery, express the pulpy black-fruited nature of the grape most completely. Wines from the Moric Estate are structured and firm and are suited for time in the cellar if you prefer not to open them immediately. But no matter which type of Blaufränkisch you prefer-youthful, unoaked, and bright; or mature, oaked, and full-you will find one to suit your palate in our selection of wines made from this refreshing varietal.
