Ernst Triebaumer Urwerk Balufrankisch 2017
Red wine. Rust, Austria. Sustainable. Blaufränkisch. The Urwerk wines from Triebaumer are wines made with no added sulfur. Elegant and rich, this wine takes time to unfold now, but it will benefit from time in the cellar. If you dink it now, double decant for at least 6 hours ahead of time. On the nose, aromas of spice, black cherry, plum and cocoa nib, with traces of bramble and earth. On the elegant palate, the primary fruit shows plum and cherry with floral notes toward the front. The mid-palate builds with cocoa nib, spice, and earthiness, and the finish is very structured with acidity and tannins and a subtle juniper quality. This is a terrific wine for venison and duck, or other rich game meats.
