Blaufränkisch is a native Slovenian variety that likes cool to moderate climate and prolonged warm summers. The colour is deeper ruby. The nose is pronounced matured, fine and layered. There is plenty of black and red fruits, such as cherries, black pepper notes, coffee, leather. Dry on the palate, full bodied with ripe moderate acidities, fully ripe, soft tannins and a very smooth texture. A classic elegant cool climate red. In perfect condition.
Steak with peppery sauces, grilled dishes very food-friendly in general.
2012 was a warm, early and high-quality vintage with plenty of ripe and healthy fruit. Very similar to 2011 but a bit fresher with more acidity. It was a very fine vintage for Blaufränkisch.
