2013 Muhr-van Der Niepoort Cuvee Vom Berg
Based in the lesser-known Austrian wine region of Carnuntum. Kind of near Vienna, Muhr-van der Niepoort is a partnership between Dorli Muhr and Dirk Niepoort. With the emphasis on elegance rather than power, fly-in winemaker Craig Hawkins (of Lammershoek fame) works with Niepoort to craft some of Austria’s best Blaufränkisch. This wine is blended with a small amount of Syrah.
