We have 18 in stock (Inventory is live and accurate)

    • Soil Type:
      • The Moric Blaufränkisch vineyards are located in the Burgenland region of Austria, where the soils are characterized by a mix of limestone, schist, and loam. These diverse soil types impart unique mineral qualities to the Blaufränkisch grapes, adding depth and complexity to the wine.
    • Elevation:
      • Situated on the slopes of the Leithaberg range, the vineyards enjoy elevations ranging from 200 to 400 meters above sea level. The higher altitude and cooler temperatures contribute to slower ripening and enhanced flavor development in the Blaufränkisch grapes.
    • Grape:
      • 100% Blaufränkisch, native to Austria and known for its deep color, vibrant acidity, and pronounced tannins.
    • Winemaking:
      • Grapes are hand-harvested at optimal ripeness, then carefully sorted and destemmed before undergoing fermentation in large oak vats with native yeasts. The wine is aged in a combination of large oak barrels and concrete tanks to preserve the purity of fruit and express the unique terroir of the vineyards. This wine is considered a natural wine due to the minimal intervention winemaking process and minimal sulfur additions.
    • Farming Practices:
      • Moric is dedicated to organic and biodynamic farming practices, cultivating the vineyards with minimal intervention to ensure the health of the soil and the vitality of the vines. Sustainable viticulture techniques are employed to promote biodiversity and preserve the natural balance of the ecosystem.
    • Tasting Notes:
      • Appearance: Deep ruby color, with violet hues, indicating the wine's freshness and intensity.
      • Aroma: Aromas of ripe blackberries, plums, and cherries mingle with notes of violet, black pepper, and dried herbs, creating a complex bouquet that evolves in the glass.
      • Palate: Medium to full-bodied and structured, with grippy tannins and bright acidity. Flavors of dark fruit, licorice, and spice are complemented by hints of graphite and a touch of funky earth, leading to a long, savory finish.
    • Pairing:
      • Pair this bold Blaufränkisch with grilled meats, game dishes, or rich soups to complement its robust flavors and firm tannins, or enjoy on its own as a contemplative wine.
    • Summary:
  • Moric (pronounced Moriz) approach involves sourcing grapes from old, high-density vineyards and employing rigorous selection, low yields, natural fermentation, and minimal intervention winemaking techniques.
    With its complex aromatics, structured palate, and age-worthy potential, this Blaufränkisch offers a captivating wine experience that reflects the best of Austrian natural winemaking.
