Staff Pick Notes

Moric is among the premier Blaufränkisch producers, and this Burgenland product is a premier example of a red grape flourishing in what is largely a white grape country: Austria. Burgenland is one of the southernmost wine producing areas of the country, making for a more moderate climate. Throw in some 85-year-old vines, natural yeasts, schist/limestone soils, and high elevation, and you've got a winner! The wine reminds me of a young, high quality Nebbiolo. Very approachable with easy tannins, a smooth leathery earthiness, peppery spices, and gorgeous red and black fruit. An age-worthy, beautifully structured, highly sought after natural wine deserving all manners of high praise.
