Sorry, sold out
Our Notes: The name means Velvet & Silk. This Blaufränkisch from the extreme eastern Austrian winegrowing region Carnuntum speaks with authority and elegance in equal measure. The well-trained musculature of a ballerina, articulate grace without compromise. A studied variety of vinification techniques—some lots whole clusters, some foot-trodden—extraordinary focus & flair, and the answer to many umami questions.

88+ Points The Wine Advocate: “The 2012 Blaufränkisch Samt & Seide offers an intense and spicy/flora/herbal-flavored bouquet of dark fruits (black berries) with beetroot, black chocolate and minty aromas (After Eight). Quite smooth and round on the palate, this is a full-bodied, well concentrated, fruit-intense and juicy Blaufränkisch with fine, ripe tannins, good freshness and a powerful finish. This 2012 is quite young and benefits from aeration. This is more concentrated and fleshy than the 2013, which is a finesse-full, fresh and very delicate character with the talents of a table dancer.” drink: 2017-2021
