A Delicious Bottle of Blaufränkisch

I don´t drink these kind of wines to often - too much wine, so little time...but I should, at least when it is as good as this one.

2008 Ried Hochberg Blaufränkisch, Hans Igler
A fine, cool, laid back nose with notes of lingonberries, bay leaves, blood orange juice, balsa wood and a smidgeon of eraser rubber. Fresh, juicy and very good. A very salivating nose.
The taste is pure, fresh and gulpable with lots of lingon- and bluberries paired with fresh herbs, licorice, violets and bay leaves. A fine acidity. The bottle just vanished!
88p   (tasted 2012/10)


  1. So pure and straightforward without being boring. Good, easy drinking!
