Weingut Uwe Schiefer, Südburgenland
Blaufränkisch Szapary, 2012
Schiefer’s Blaufränkisch Szapary is named for the steep slope of quartzite- and iron-rich schist or, as German speakers would simply say:‘Schiefer’, that Uwe Schiefer thinks is the best in the Eisenberg area. Bright, sappy blackberry and cherry and bitter-sweet herbal concentrate are met by salty, peaty, crushed stone notes in a truly palate-saturating communion. This has a cut and clarity, a cling and invigoration you won’t often encounter in a red wine.
