MORIC Reserve 2020
Blaufrankisch is the variety that has lifted Roland Velich and the Moric estate into the stratosphere of wine producers. The Reserve bottling is the estate's flagship wine, only topped by very limited old vine bottlings known as Alte Reben. The Moric Reserve is a cuvee of his best barrels made from 27-60 year old vines grown in the calcereous soils of what was once the Pannonian sea, now the Lutzmannsburg plateau, in the towns of Zagersdorf and St. Georgen .
The Reserve is always recognized by it's fine tannins, elegant palate and texture and retention of pure red fruit and lift. In this fantastic vintage there is a touch of liquorice, dried herbs and florality, oolong tea and earth. Wonderful acidity makes this a truly satisfying and inviting Blaufrankisch. A simply delicious wine.
