SKU: 2018 BLAUFRANKISCH 750ML

Produced from estate grown Lemberger, this wine spent 24 months in French Oak barrels to concentrate the fruit flavors of blueberry and the spicy pepper notes.

Winemaker's Notes: The fruit for this wine was fermented in open top fermenters for 18 days before pressing. The wine was blended and laid to rest in a mix of subtle French oak barrels for 24 months. The minimal manipulation of this wine allowed it to express its varietal character. The strong aromatics of blueberry reduction and cracked black pepper make for an exciting food pairing with wild game or lamb dishes.

I can't say enough good things about this wine. I was hesitant to embrace it as I was unfamiliar with this grape varietal. But my summer BBQs and fall harvest dinners wouldn't have been the same without it. The complexity and richness keeps me coming back for more! It's my new favorite, even if I can't spell it.
