Nachbil is located in Beltiug in the North-Western Transylvania region of Romania where they organically farm 23 ha of vineyard in excellent climactic conditions. The 300-year-old wine cellar sits next to a new wine making facility, where all grapes are processed.
Blaufränkisch seems to be gaining popularity at the moment, most likely due to its pleasant supple, juicy style and appealing bright purple colour - this one from Nachbil has something of the Southern Rhône about it, a supple muscularity behind the blackberry, sour red cherry and tobacco notes that are typical of this variety. A decent backbone of acidity provides structure, while gentle tannins ensure the wine is perfectly approachable in its youth. Lovely with rich tomato dishes, mushroom risotto or soft goat’s cheese.
