Vesztergombi Kekfrankos, Szekszard, Hungary 2018

Regular price £14.29

Spiced strawberry, red plum and dried cherry hints in this Pinot-like red, with lovely intensity of sweet strawberry and typical spicy notes

The Vesztergombi family looks back on a centuries-old tradition of winemaking in the region around Szekszárd in southern Hungary, where the River Danube meanders between rolling hills and fertile valleys. This scenic setting provides the perfect conditions for growing red grapes with character. The Vesztergombi winery was re-established in 1991, resurrecting the long-held family tradition. Its first Bikavér (Bull's Blood) was released in 1993, the year when founder Ferenc Vesztergombi was awarded the prestigious “Winemaker of the Year” title in Hungary. Today, with three generations working together in the business, the winery continues to produce outstanding red wines that authentically reflect the unique terroir of the Szekszárd region.

Bottled after 10 months of aging in large oak barrels.

Tasting Note: Deep, clear and bright plum, with complex creamy red fruit, hints of spice. Lovely, easy red fruit & tame tannin, spicy hints on the palate. Lovely
