Moric 2017 BlaufränkischRegular price £23
Before Roland Velich started his Moric project, the little-known Blaufränkisch grape variety was considered an inferior alternative to Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. But from the start, the Moric wines were made like Grand Cru Burgundy, and it was immediately obvious that a much better comparison was Pinot Noir. Beautifully fragrant, elegant, light reds, the wines seem to express the character of their vineyards much as Burgundy does. The entry level Blaufränkisch has become a modern classic.
Ruthless selection from old, low-yielding vineyards. Fermented with natural yeasts in large vats. No new oak.
