Attila 2012 The Library Collection – only 66 packs are available!
One vintage from four perspectives
The wine writer has a lot of responsibilities, and this time mine is to convey the message as soon as possible. I was not quick enough. I received the news from A. Gere Winery 2 days ago, I should have posted it immediately. Two days ago there were 184 packs, now only 66 are available, so if you want one, you had better hurry.
Villány icon winery is probably most famous for their Kopar cuvée or Solus Merlot, but there is a wine at the estate above the others, and this is Attila – the name of Attila Gere, the founder, and also the name of the famous Hun warrior. Attila Cuvée is made only in the best vintages and 2012 was an exceptional one. Later other vintages came out, but for the members of the family 2012 still remained unique. “…until now, we have been keeping a secret. In minuscule quantities, but we have also bottled different versions of the 2012 Attila Cuvée which had never been released independently before. These are wines that reflect the differences between our individual tastes. We are now going back to this vintage from ten years ago, because we believe this exceptional vintage deserves the time invested in it. In an extremely limited edition, we present Attila 2012 – The Library Collection which shows the 2012 vintage of Attila from four different perspectives.“
Fruit and elegance or ripeness and power?
“There is no fixed recipe for the Attila, it is always blended with the highest proportion of the variety that has performed best in the vintage. What makes it all so exciting is the fact that although we have developed the style of the estate together over the years through many tastings, there are still some intriguing differences in the way we approach wine as a goal and a phenomenon. For Attila Gere, the main consideration is the finish and the complexity. He always thinks long-term, he sees the ageing curve in 5, 10, 15 years’ time or longer. Andrea Gere focuses on the fruit character in the wine, looking for elegance and complexity throughout. For Attila Gere Jr, ripeness, a powerful character and structure are the firm foundations for a wine true to the style of the region“.
