Beneduce Vineyards, Blue 2 Blaufränkisch 2017, New Jersey
Tasting Note: A blaufränkisch that delivers aromatically on the nose with a reserved palate experience that channels the old world.
Medium-intensity ruby in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of black plum, blueberry, blackberry, violet, black tea and raspberry.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied blaufränkisch has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium-plus acidity.
Bottle Note: Every ambitious endeavor begins with a detailed plan – a blueprint – in our case. Seeking to create a wine definitive of our estate vineyard, our answer was unveiled in the form of a unique varietal, blaufränkisch. These vines have anchored themselves deeply into our mineral-rich hillside, delivering a wine with a silky smooth texture and enticing aromas of applewood smoked bacon and blueberries.
