Staff Pick Notes

Since abandoning his law career to take over his grandfather’s vineyard, Petr Korab has been driven by his passion for learning. The most important lesson learned is what experienced natural vignerons all know: great wine is made by good farming. Through the years, he has converted methods to organic then to biodynamic. Happy and healthy fruit allows the winemaking to be hands off and the wines to be full of life. His Karmazin (or Blaufränkisch), is his own favorite wine. It is dense, slightly viscous, and full of energy. It shows dark fruit, dried herbs, pine, beeswax, and earth. Open alongside lamb chops.

Glossary

Blaufränkisch

Germans call it Lemberger, Austrians call it Blaufränkisch; let's call the whole thing off. What's important is that this black grape variety produces spicy wines with good tannins and firm acidity, similar to one of the crus of Beaujolais; in fact, until recently, Blaufränkisch was believed to be Gamay. These are often ageworthy wines, and they're some of the best things coming out of Austria these days.
