This wine takes its name from the grape variety. Lemberger/Kekfrankos are synonyms from surrounding countries. Believed to originate in modern day Austria's Mittelburgenland region, of the indigenous varieties, the late-ripening Blaufränkisch is not very demanding when it comes to soil. It tolerates chalky soils. But the truth is that it prospers best in deep, fertile loess-clay soils. Typical Austrian Blaufränkisch shows a restrained, old world style.
Deep purple core fading to clear rim. Black cherry and rich raspberry aromas mingle with stemmed tomatoes in a backdrop of grilled seasoned meat. Black and red fruits create quite an introduction. The pronounced raspberry and balsamic notes are lush and ripe with an ethereal herbaceous aura.
Pair with medium rare rosemary dijon mustard and garlic rack of lamb with crispy fried onion rings and whole wheat spaetzle, and dressed with balsamic cauliflower florets dusted with paprika.
The 2015 Blaufränkisch is a playful backdrop for a refreshing red-fruit of a homemade red grouse of cranberries, cherries and cranberries and the spicy spice of a herb garden, not to mention a peppermill. Its rectilinear compact body vibrates in an even-phase harmony with fine-grained soft tannins and an acid-invigorating acidic nerve. A proud and elegant representative of his stand, who joyfully brings density and fullness into the glass in the right degree and without any seriousness.
