Tasting notes

A Portugieser from the Jammertal vineyard, bottled following fermentation and six months of maturation in wooden casks. The longer maturing period extends the wine’s lifetime. Crimson in colour with shades of purple, with velvety acids, fruity in flavour while cherry aromas appear in its bouquet. A more complex,  spicier wine than is customary in a Portugieser.

  • Portugieser du Monde 2017- Gold medal

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.
