100% Syrah – though this variety is not a typical grape around Lake Balaton, Feind Winery makes superb examples of Syrah under the guidance of their French winemaker.
The grape came from Somlyó hill (not to be confused with Somló) in the village of Balatonfőkajár, the “corner” of the lake. The harvest took place by machine and the fermented wine aged in barrique.
We could recently taste the whole portfolio of Feind Winery, and Syrah was undoubtedly one of their most interesting wines. “Mediterranean style nose with spices of Provence (mainly thyme). Spicy palate with ripened red fruit character. Full bodied, complex wine with serious ageing potential.”
