Tasting notes

A global variety that has found a home for itself in the Villány wine region. While in other parts of the world the Sauvignon is the primary Cabernet, in Villány the Cabernet Franc has come to the fore. Following fermentation it is matured in large oak barrels for 12 months.  It is a deep red, full-bodied wine of dark intensity. It is remarkably complex in bouquet and taste, in which its fruitiness creates a harmonious unity with the aromas originating from the barrel.

A mild winter was followed by an early spring with average precipitation and the odd hailstorm, mostly affecting the area around Siklós. This was followed by a dry, warm period which was especially kind to the blossom and resulting fruit. Summer was long and dry with a high aggregate of heat freshened by much midseason precipitation (100-150 mm). This resulted in some harvests being delayed, but even so the area yielded a generous harvest of grapes of extremely good quality. This year’s main challenges for wine-growers was scorching from the sun and the quick change in acid content. All in all we can speak of an excellent year.
