Reserve Eisenberg Blaufränkisch 2017

Special late bottling of the Eisenberg Blaufränkisch.
Dark & brooding, with earthy, rocky aromas dominating, a whiff of iron, raw beef, but also succulent dark fruit and fresh Mandarine peel. Quite flowery, too.
On the palate this is light, with zippy, fresh acidity and a firm, juicy tannic frame. Savoury, juicy, delicious. Depth, character, finesse.
Very Nebbiolo-esque.

Eisenberg DAC Reserve Ried Szapary Blaufränkisch 2017

Brambly blackberries and dark plums with spicy, smoky note and a whiff of coffee. Nice & smooth on the palate, quite cool, with nice tension between the sweet fruit, fresh acidity and slightly rustic tannins. This is very food friendly but also v. drinkable solo. A lovely wine with character. — 2 years ago

Eisenberg DAC Reserve Rechnitz Blaufränkisch 2017

Straka Blaufränkisch Eisenberg Reserve Rechnitz 2017
So expressive on the nose with Zwetschgen plum jam, spiced up with cinnamon, cloves and a touch of anise. But there’s more. Mandarine & lemon peel, dried apple, wilted flowers, smoked, dried plums, aged raw beef.
This is so multifaceted. So fresh & pure yet sweet & seductive at the same time.
On the palate this is really juicy & sappy. Ther’s some sweetness to the fruit & the scented wood accents underneath but the juicy acidity and purity is forefront adm driving this wine. There’s a savoury side to this as well, a touch of minerality, the tannins fine & dusty yet still providing a frame.
This is truly delicious stuff!! They weren’t joking about this Straka guy!

Trocken Blaufränkisch 2017

Wow! This is a cracker. The aromas of cigars with the grip of its tannins made this one to sip by the fire just on its own and not with food — 10 months ago

I’d plough this Blau. Such a great kick from this grape. I like the tension, the tannin. The “Pinot Noir of the East”, I’ll let debate draw out elsewhere. But lay a sausage on a plate in front of me with a bottle of Blau and that is a fine eastern pairing. — 3 years ago

My Blaufrankisch spectrum is limited to a handful of producers. This interested me because it’s a rare red import from Skurnick. It’s softer, less abrupt, and more lush compared to my memory bank of Blau. Metallic, blackberry, raspberry, all spice, and minerals. — 3 years ago
