Tasting notes:
Our Blaufränkisch shows deep red with a violet rim. In the nose it shows incredibly fine fruit which remembers of blackberries together with fine spiciness. On the palate the wine shows again deep and spicy berry fruit which is backed up by fine acidity and shows a mineral finish. A elegant, good structured wine with good ageing potential
