2003 Moric Neckenmarrkt Blaufrankisch Alte Reben

SKU #1170603 92 points Vinous

 Powerful ruby-garnet with violet highlights. Red berry aromas, cocoa powder, nougat and sweet spices emerge with aeration. Charming and varietally expressive, with sweet black cherry fruit perfectly cushioned by velvety tannins. Lingering cherry-flavored aftertaste. This is already delicious. Drink 2008 to 2015.

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The self-styled village wine 2003 Blaufrankisch Neckenmarkter combines blackberry and cooked strawberry with brown spices and high-toned cherry pit and almond esters in the nose, then comes to the palate astonishingly juicy and crunchy for this torrid vintage, combining a creamy texture and leesy adjuncts with clear, pure black fruit and a chalky mineral finishing character. A 2003 Blaufrankisch Neckenmark Alte Reben was done in a higher percentage of new wood than Velich would normally want and was not really revealing its old vines depth for now. (DS)  (8/2006)

Austria

- Austria is a well-respected wine-growing region in Europe. Yet, even though they make about a third the volume of wine as Germany, not many of these fine bottles make it to the shelves of American wine merchants or restaurants. Lucky for us, their anonymity has translated into incredible value from simple, everyday whites to exquisite dessert wines. Austria shares many grape varieties with Germany—Riesling is king here, too. But the style of Austrian whites is much dryer and more potent. Grüner Veltliner is Austria's second-most-important varietal and makes whites of great versatility and pleasure. Click for a list of bestselling items from Austria.
