A distilled challenge of Etyeki Kúria
The state of art winery in Etyek wine region, near Budapest is the favourite of many Hungarian and foreign wine geeks. Its tasting room and terrace with fabulous view of the surrounding vineyards, their small and big events attract thousands of visitors every year. Now the outcome of a new adventure has been announced: Etyeki Kúria has created its own brandy. The spirit was matured in Burgundian oak barrel (François Frères) for 2 years, which had previously been used to age the amazing Pinot Noir wine of Etyeki Kúria for 4 years. The ’Borpárlat’ (brandy in Hungarian) has a complex nose of ripe pinepple and yellow flesh peach lifted by the freshness of orange peel and with a hint of candied hazelnut. Lively palate with orange peel and white pepper that lead to caramellized tropical fruits and roasted hazelnut. The label follows the winery’s label design, which is reminiscent of the typical Swabish cross stich embroidery. The winery awaits winelovers to taste this special manifestum of the grape this Saturday (19 January) from 11.00 to 17.00. You can also choose a cup of hot glühwein and with your drink a sweet, delicious apple pie will surely warm you up. The tasting is free of charge! Only 600 bottles were made of the brandy and it is available only from Etyeki Kúria wine shop.
