Evolucio Blaufrankisch, Burgenland, Austria 2018
This off-the beaten-path wine is a staple on our shelves, and we decided to spotlight it this month. Evolúció Blaufränkisch is a fresh and focused red with an energetic acidity and a light body. It brightens every inch of your palate with raspberries, bramble, intermixed with a touch of earthy funkiness and black pepper.
Austria is typically associated with white wine, but Burgenland, along the country’s eastern edge is known for Blaufränkisch. With 300 days of sunshine a year, they have no problem ripening this red varietal.
Enjoy this light and snappy red when it is warm outside. You could even put it in the fridge for a few minutes, too. A winning pairing would be smoked sausage and red potato goulash with smoked sausage.
