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.

93 Points Wine Enthusiast Magazine: “Pure notes of crushed blueberry have a wonderfully tart edge, almost like wild little huckleberries. The same, pure and intense fruit spreads across the textured body where fine and ever so slightly rustic tannins crunch pleasurably. This wine shows the juicy, almost voluptuous ripeness of 2015 without ever losing freshness or tone. This should come with some sort of pleasure warning. Simply delicious. Drink 2018–2025.”
