2011 BLAUFRANKISCH Kalk und Schiefer Nittnaus
||Origin: Austria, Burgenland
Lea & Sandeman review
'Kalk und Schiefer' translates as slate and limestone, which is what this Blaufrankisch is grown on, giving great minerality and focus to the deep, bright fruit. If this were from Burgundy or Piedmont it would be twice the price. Mineral and peppery, juicy black fruit, lovely lively finish leads easily to the next glass.
Other reviews and comments
There is a lot happening on the nose a blackcurrant and bramble mix. The palate has richness depth of flavour with black cherry firm in the middle but towards the back it fills out with the fleshiness of ripe fruit. Drink 2014-2020 Tasted Feb 2014
