Heimann & Fiai Szekszárd Kékfrankos 2018
Light-footed with bright red fruit aromas and a touch of spiciness
Region | Szekszárd, Transdanubian Hills
Grape Variety | Kékfrankos
Often mistaken for Pinot Noir or Gamay for its bright floral and spicy aromas though tends to be more vibrant and spicy. Most widely planted red grape variety in Hungary. Tends to be medium-bodied with fine grained tannins and medium-high acidity.
Style | Fresh & Light
A wine that is light bodied and under 12.5% alcohol with medium to high acidity and delicate primary fruity aromas. Think varietal expression, fruit purity and precision rather than emphasis on wine making i.e battonage, reduction, oak, lees contact. These are refreshing wines with wide appeal. Typical tasting note expressions are ‘crisp’, ‘fresh’, ‘zesty’, ‘cool climate’, ‘purity of fruit’, ‘lean’. In its simplest form a light bodied wine would be equivalent to ‘skimmed’ milk and a full- bodied wine equivalent to blue-top, ‘whole fat’ milk. If your preference is for lighter bodied wines, look out for these grape varieties – young Gruner Veltliner, young Riesling, Pinot Bianco/Blanc, Frappato, unaged Chardonnay, Cinsault (whites), Pinot Noir, Gamay, Kadarka (reds).
