Really wide spectrum of aromas. Darker, more purple fruit profile, with savoury, undergrowth and umami going on but at the other end of things, floral and exotic high-toned aromas too. Incredible complexity. In the mouth this is full of sweeter, plusher more raspberry fruits (think the skin and leaves included). Continues to build in intensity, peacock’s tail in nature. Sweet fruit just pushes on and on with really incredible length.
This wine represents a selection made from the oldest vines and the best sites in Lutzmannsburg. The Lutzmannsburger plateau arose on top of a primordial volcano, and here the idyllic landscape encompasses a variety of soils: sand, clay and loam, in part lying above limestone subsoils. These confer an incomparably unique expression upon the Blaufränkisch, which manifests Itself ideally in this wine. This wine has been harvested from ten separate parcels, all picked and fermented separately. After ten months élevage in casks, the initial blend is made, upon which the wine enjoys an additional twelve months in the barrel.
60-100+ year old vines. 17 hectolitres per hectare yield. 23-28 days maceration, spontaneous fermentation in open fermenters and wooden vats. 24 months élevage in 500-4000 litre casks. No fining. No filtration. No additives, except tiny quantities of sulfites. As a result of that, all of the Moric wines are vegan.
