Tasting notes

A cuvee made from resting the juices of Villány’s Ördögárok (Cabernet Franc 50%), Jammertal (Cabernet Sauvignon 25%) and Fekete-hegy (Merlot 25%) for 24 months in French and Hungarian 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.

2012 was a year of extreme cold and hot temperatures. The winter freeze was followed by a long, dry spring and summer. The extra warmth brought early budding and an early vintage. The year produced wines of outstanding quality and high alcohol content
