Delicious blueberry, plum and cinnamon notes are still shy on the nose. The palate also holds them tight with pervading, lively freshness and a very slight spritz. White pepper spice colors the edges, making for an exciting, concentrated but light-footed wine that has rusticity and elegance in equal measure. Lovely now but sure to develop. Drink now–2025.

Product Description:

"From a young age, Uwe Schiefer dreamed of exploiting the potential of Blaufränkisch on the Eisenberg's unique slate. And in his hands we can see what he was thinking. This is a lush, fragrant Blaufränkisch of crushed violet, roses, and red plum. Pure, ripe black cherry fruit on the palate is coupled with an elegant, mineral structure and an even tannic structure. There is a polish and balance that speaks of careful selection and thoughtful, but not over-manipulative, vinification (i.e. new oak or over-extraction). Schiefer works without chemicals in the vineyard and uses partial stem inclusion, native yeasts, and neutral barrels of various size. This is a wine of unmistakable terroir, finesse, and age-ability, and the mix of ripeness, moderate alcohol and good structure is reminiscent of cru Beaujolais and Mencia, though with its own charm and personality." - Importer
