Tasting notes

The great selection of the cellar, made only in exceptional years.  Made from selections from Fekete-hegy Cabernet Franc (60%) and Jammertál Cabernet Sauvignon (30%) and Merlot (10%) matured for 24 months in new oak barrels. A full-bodied, concentrated wine with an incredible wealth of aroma and depth of flavour. It is characterized by a deeply intense colour verging on black in which tobacco and milk chocolate appear alongside overripe fruit. Alongside the dried fruits, chocolate is a dominant element of its flavour.

After a late spring and a fickle summer came a beautiful autumn with equable weather. Never before had we handled such a lovely, elegant and balanced year of such enduring promise. The 2006 vintage commenced on September 5 amid expectations and doubts. After the late spring and variable summer all our hopes lay with the autumn. Thanks to the long-awaited dry and outstandingly warm September and October, both early and late varieties ripened nicely. This was one of those special years where high sugar and alcohol content combined with a pleasant acidity. Of of which were crowned by concentrated fruity aromas and deep colours.
