Grape Variety: Blaufrankisch
Producer: Organic Anarchy (Aci Urbajs)
Region: Štajerska, Slovenia
Wild Scale: 3/5
Vegan friendly wine
Winemaking: Biodynamic Blaufrankisch grapes were harvested by hand and fermented in an open top fermenter for 2 weeks. Aged in old Slovenian oak and bottled with no fining, filtration or added sulphur.
This Wine: Natural red with amazing freshness and acidity considering the age. Some of that fresh black cherry fruit has begun to develop into more savoury territory and there is some pleasant earthy structure. Best served with food.
Notes on the Winemaker: Aci Urbajs works just one hectare of vines near Ritnik hill in the east of Slovenia. He started using biodynamic methods in 1998 and grows small quantities of Kerner, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, Blaufrankisch and Pinot Noir from which he produces profoundly complex and sophisticated wines that have reached cult status in certain circles.
