A wine between 12.5-13.5% alcohol with more some intensity of fruit and stronger flavours than in a light bodied wine. Climate and winemaking techniques such as when the grapes are picked at harvest time, ageing, oak will affect the shape and boldness of a wine. With medium to high acidity and/or medium tannins, these are quintessential foodie wines. If your preference is for wines with a bit more body and concentration, then look out for these grape varieties: 2-3 year aged whites such as Chardonnay, Riesling, Gruner Veltliner and for the reds, Sangiovese, Garnacha, Cabernet Franc, Kekfrankos.

Description

A delicate – medium bodied, aromatic wine. Slightly restrained fruit. This is a gastronomic wine that needs time to open up and when she does, expresses violet, dried flower and red fruit notes. The grapes for this Kékfrankos are grown in the middle of the Baranya-völgy in vineyards enjoying abundant sunshine. With a southeast exposure the valley opens to the Great Hungarian Plain so the grapes ripen early and yield consistently rich wines. The 50 year old vineyard was restructured in 2009 and since then it is one of the gems of the estate.

Food pairing
