  Roland Velich is a master of Blaufränkisch and his single-vineyard wines come from the Mittelburgenland. Even this basic bottling is exciting. The nose shows opulent black fruits; blueberries steeped in vanilla, though he uses no new oak. Ripe and almost sweet, this is balanced by acidity that gives a slight sharpness to the palate. Red fruits on the finish, which is intense and long. Drinking Window 2018-2026. (SB)   (12/2018)

90pts Wine Spectator

Alluring, with aromas of violet and cherry blossom that lead to flavors of concentrated red plum and dark cherry. Touches of chocolate orange lengthen out nicely on the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2022. (AZ)   (11/2018)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

The 2016 Burgenland Blaufränkisch is sourced from Lutzmannsburg (80%), Zagersdorf (15%) and the Ruster Hügelland (5%). Pure, fresh and floral on the spicy-fruity nose, this is a charmingly elegant, crisp and pure Blaufränkisch with good grip and tension. It's not very complex but is full of joy and stimulating freshness. Tasted August 2018. (SR)   (12/2018)
