MORIC Alte Reben Lutzmannsburg 2021

$ 178.00

The highly anticipated 2021 vintage. Not only was Roland Vellich awarded the prestigious Falstaff Winmemaker of the Year but scores are off the charts for his 2021 Blaufrankisch bottlings. Evocative, complex layers of wild herbs, dark fruit, smoky earth. Seductive, structured with incredibly fine tannins. This is Blaufrankisch treated like Grand Cru Burgundy. Some background: 80-100 year old Blaufrankisch vines from Roland's sites atop the Lutzmannsberg plateau, the ancient weathered remains of a volcano. For the Lutzmannsberg the grapes represent the full mix of soil types: iron rich clay and sand over limestone producing a wine of immense complexity and elegance. This is a densely packed, layered version of Blaufrankisch, well structured and certainly not opulent but all in perfect balance. A wine that may be enjoyed for very long time.
