Wine region: Styria – Slovenia
Variety: 100% blaufränkisch
Maturation: Stainless steel
Boris’s tip: My favorite light red wine in Slovenia.(generally not only this one). Our native variety. If you like Young pinot noir try this one.
We are proudly presenting our premier – a youthful, unaged Blaufränkisch. It shows gentle ruby colour with some purple hues. Youthful, vibrant, and predominantly fruity on the nose. Reminiscent of fresh red berry fruits such as strawberries, raspberries with touch of peppery spice. Very dry on the palate, with refreshing acidities and lighter body and just a hint of tannins. Not unlike a serious rosé in a ruby dress. It is style where youth and exuberant fruitiness is expected from first
Cold April and May broadcasted a rather late harvest, but a very hot June almost completely compensated the delay, though not completely. July and August were warm but not hot and nice weather in September enabled grapes to be picked well into October. 2019 brought very good yields and quality is very dependent of the skills of the winemakers. At Dveri-Pax we are very happy with the results. We produced classic wines with profound varietal aromatic profiles and moderate even low alcohol levels typical for the region.
Pairing with food: Excellent with dried meat, salami and most of carpaccio and blue fish. Thinking of barbecue and grill? There is hardly a better companion. It will serve you more than well as a wine of the moment, enjoyed in good company, on the summer terrace, beach, or ski-resort. Any-time, anywhere.
