Weingut Joiseph, BFF Blaufrankisch 2020Regular price $43.00 Save $-43.00
Joiseph is a project started by three friends that was only begun in 2015. The project started at an extremely small scale and grew slowly and modestly. The wines are light and delicious, showcasing some of the best wines to come out of Burgenland right now. “Joiseph” is a bit of a playful ode to their village of Jois from where the vines hale within Burgenland. The wines are honest and straightforward; there is no hiding behind gimmicks or marketing here.
‘BFF’ means ‘Blaufrankisch Forever’ and we couldn’t agree more. Even for a more esoteric variety, this might just be the best on the market. As Vom Boden says, “wow, this wine is fucking good.” Think of all the things one could love of Loire Cabernet Franc and Rhone Syrah, but bring the fresh, lifted style of Austrian reds, and it’s a true winner. Just a hint of semi-carbonic maceration makes it textural and a bit reductive.
