BFF, Joiseph 2018
Blaufränkisch. Jois, Burgenland, Austria
Joiseph's trademark red, the BFF, is back with this new vintage. Made from Blaufränkisch, this wine is lean yet full of nuances, velvety, perfectly spicy, perfectly elegant. The colour is pretty amazing, almost beetroot purple. The wine was recently bottled so is showing some reduction upon opening (a funkiness on the nose) but it will blow off with 15mins of air and bloom beautifully.
Joiseph is a collaboration between three friends that started with the 2015 vintage and has grown from a tiny hectare to nearly five hectares. The wines across the range are distinct, wildly exciting, and full of energy.
