#100 of Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2020
"This combines power and grace, with a ripe profile and lively acidity. Flavors of cherry and currant harmonize with hints of loam, underbrush and hibiscus tea. Complex and fresh-tasting, but also firm, this red is intriguingly long and inviting. Blaufränkisch, Zweigelt and Pinot Noir. Drink now through 2026. 200 cases imported."
David Schildknecht, the [former] Austrian specialist for Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, describes Roland Velich and his Moric wines this way: "Roland Velich is no longer working with his brother Heinz at the family estate in Apetlon, but is pursuing his own dream, working with old vines in the heart of Blaufrankisch country Mittelburgenland, specifically Lutzmannsburg and Neckenmarkt".
His are wines in a style you will not encounter anywhere else in Austria: Blaufrankisch vinified as if it were Grand Cru Burgundy, and from hillsides (including terraces) and pre-clonal vines the like of which you will not find being cultivated in most of Mittelburgenland. One sip is an Oz experience. From his dreams, to his vines, to his vinification, to his retro label, Velich is in a world of his own.
