Chemical-free grape growing, high crop control, careful manual harvesting and grape sorting are preceding the ageing process of the wine in new 225 litre oak barrels on fine lees (sur lie) for a period of 18 months.
It features a deep ruby color and an expressive smoky aroma, coupled with sour cherry, damson and a slight sun-dried touch. Spiciness obtained from the barrel is dominating the aromas.
This is a rich, full-bodied wine with high alcohol content and a lean tannin structure, accompanied by red and black berries. It is an overwhelming wine with a distinct and long finish.
The structure of the wine enables multi-annual ageing.
Drinking temperature is recommended around 15-16 ‘C to accompany red meat dishes or to enjoy it just on its own by Blue-Frankish wine lovers, collectors and curio-hunters.

Story of the wine:
There was a devastating frost in the spring of 2015 in the hills of Siklós, resulting in the winter-kill of most of our Blue-Frankish grapes. Then came a pleasant summer and a wonderful harvest - whatever was left over after the frost. We were utterly happy, although we knew we were going to have a very limited output, although of superb quality. Unfortunately, the grapes were to the taste of deer as well as they gorged the majority of the crop. The result was an incredibly wonderful wine and a total of 240 bottles (0.75 l), thanks to the unusual natural “crop control” (frost and deer).
No wonder this wine is a treasure for us, a precious vintage wine, a real rarity. It goes without saying that it is only available in the winery in limited quantities and reserved exclusively for our private buyers.
