The Blaufränkisch Samt & Seide is the “super-second wine” of the Spitzerberg “Grand Vin” and comes from up to 40-year-old vines. The wine opens with a pure and spicy, very delicate and fresh bouquet of crushed stones, dried flowers and sour cherries. like the Cuvée vom Berg, this is another Alpine character and is fascinating in its purity and spicy freshness. On the palate, this is a more fruity, round and charming Blaufränkisch compared to the Blaufränkisch/Syrah Cuvée and shows nice juiciness and fine, in fact silky tannin structure without losing its purity, finesse and tensioned elegance. This is another remarkable red wine from the so called “difficult” vintage.
Rating: 92 The Wine Advocate
Together with Portuguese Dirk Niepoort, best known for his Port and Douro wines, Austrian Dorli Muhr resuscitated her family vineyards to produce some of Austria’s very finest Blaufränkisch. Grapes come from the south facing slope of the Spitzerberg, a dry place with typically low rainfall and rocky soils. Very small yields and gentle extraction with 2 years aging result in a charming and elegant Blaufrankisch.
