The name of this wine was intended to be Blaufränkisch Forever, but it could quickly become anyone’s best friend, for that it will please a vast variety of gatherings. Whether you bring it for dinner at your parent’s house or BBQ with friends as the summer fades out, it will spark joy anywhere it lands. It is made of 100% Blaufränkisch, with 50% whole bunches covered with de-stemmed mash. It was barely touched during fermentation, only enough to keep the cap wet and let the extraction happen slowly and steadily. When it was lightly punched down once in a while, it was done gently, by hand. The result is pretty astonishing. While it delivers the undeniable character of the Blaufränkisch grape — dark juicy fruits, cooking herbs like rosemary and thyme, black olive and five-spice, earthiness tied up with a sharp backbone of acidity — it remains playful in its structure. The tannins are silky and integrated. The ripeness is comforting and shows no signs of heaviness. I don’t know how many more words I can use to describe the only one that seems necessary here: balance. This wine is just simply harmonious. And if you don’t already know this fantastic well-kept secret: Blaufränkisch is a beautiful candidate for ageing in general, and BFF will refine even more if you dare to lay it down. It paired amazingly with an alfresco dinner made of a vegetable tart and green beans with pesto. GREAT pizza wine option here, too. It will complement dishes with tomato sauce with its vibrant acidity, lasagna comes to mind, or eggplant parmigiana - Emily Campeau
