Umathum Blaufrankisch 2018

$ 24.50

This is a blend of Pepi Umathum's vineyards with vines up to 28 years old on the North-West side of Lake Neusiedlersee. The soils are a dominated by calcareous deposits of limestone and loamy chalk with a bit of slate and benefit from the cool winds off the mountains to the north of the lake and have a long slow ripening season. Umathum follows biodynamic farming practices but is no longer certified. Grapes are handpicked and ages in old oak barrels for 2 years. It is a wine that benefits from a bit of air as it has been resting for a few years but is ready to drink now or to hold. Garnet red. Red cherry fruit with hints of mint and pomegranate over layers of graphite and currants,
