Tasting notes

A global variety that has made a home for itself in the Villány wine region. In especially good years it is suitable for producing a wine of internationally outstanding quality. Following fermentation it spends 12 months maturing in large, oak barrels after which it is bottled. Its deep, dark ruby red colour blends with aromas and flavours reminiscent of blackberries and blackcurrants.

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.
