Muhr-van der Niepoort is collaboration between acclaimed Port producer Dirk Niepoort and Austrian Dorli Muhr and they’re producing some of Austria’s best Blaufrankisch wines. Blaufrankisch is Austria’s 2nd most planted red grape and is also commonly found in Hungary (Kekfrankos) and Germany (Lemberger). Their ‘Samt & Seide’ wine, which translates to ‘Velvet & Silk’ is smooth and silky as the name implies. It’s a medium bodied wine, dense with red and black currants with some nice toasted oak spice to balance the bright fruit. A great introduction to Blaufrankisch if you’ve never tried it.
