This is the kind of wine, housed in a litre bottle, that instantly makes me salivate.
It’s Blaufränkisch under its Slovenian name Frankovka Modra, made as a super-light glou glou style. But… the grape variety’s character comes across loud and clear, with spine tingling fruit acids and a hint of sour cherry which adds to the refreshment.
I’d say the harvest date was beautifully judged on this one – the fruit feels ripe, but still light and easy to drink.
Everything about this bottle – the clear glass, the crown cap – just screams “drink me now”. I love it!
