Production

Handpicked dry farmed organically grown grapes with nothing added - 4 weeks on skins in 2000L old oak with wild yeast fermentation. After 11 months in the barrel the wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered and kept back a further 2 months before release. 2500 bottles of 2017 vintage produced.

Tasting notes

Blaufränkisch seems to be gaining popularity at the moment, most likely due to its pleasant juicy style and appealing bright purple colour - this one from Nachbil has something of the Southern Rhône about it, a supple muscularity behind the blackberry, sour red cherry and tobacco notes that are typical of this variety. A decent backbone of acidity provides structure, while gentle tannins ensure the wine is perfectly approachable in its youth.

Food match

Rich tomato dishes, mushroom risotto or soft goats cheese.
