Tasting Notes

Blaufrankisch is Austria’s second most planted red varietal (after Zweigelt, a product of crossing Blaufrankisch and St. Laurent) and it is gaining traction in international circles as an emerging big, rich, red wine when cultivated and vinified correctly. Without doubt, Zahel’s Blaufrankisch is one of the best examples of this varietal, aided by their focus on single vineyard, organically managed vines (in this case the acclaimed Goldberg vineyard), very mature, low yielding vines (57 yr. old vines), along with subtle but important wood aging.

This is a mouth-filling, chewy red with intense blackberry and black currant fruit, spicy aromas, enhanced by well-integrated wood aromas. On the palate the wine is full bodied, with ripe, fine tannins, and reflecting the same blackberry, black currant, spice notes. The finish is long and elegant.

Food Pairings

Pair with a traditional Hungarian goulash, roasted game birds, and bread dumplings
