Originating in Slovenia, this late-ripening varietal has had a happy home in the Eastern European climate for centuries. Evolucio’s Blaufrankisch is grown on the eastern side of Austria, in Weinland. Harboring 92% of the country’s wine production, this is perhaps the most straight-forward, aptly named region we’ve encountered in a while.

We get the characteristic red berry fruit, earth, and warm spices on the nose. Then a lively acidity, more farm-y soil, and a clean finish on the palate. This wine is buoyant and cozy at the same time.

Food Ideas: Green pea and chickpea falafel, lamb saag, chicken paprikash, alpine cheeses, anything with rosemary.
