Gold and red – Gere Tamás & Zsolt Villányi Franc ‘Várerdő Cru’ 2016
Wine for All Saints Day
In some cultures people take food and wine to the cemeteries to “treat the gone ones”. Celebrate the dead ones in a cheerful way might be strange for those, who light a candle and remember silently, but All Saints Day definitely deserves a special wine. A wine that makes you contemplate, a wine that last long.
Várerdő Cru Villányi Franc is undoubtedly an outstanding wine. In the previous edition of Berliner Wine Trophy (Winter Tasting 2021) it received a gold medal. ‘Várerdő’ is a Villány vineyard with unparalleled quality, and this flagship wine of Gere Tamás & Zsolt family winery is made only in exceptional vintages. 100% Cabernet Franc aged in oak barrel for 18 months.
“Elegant, attractive nose with restraint fruits and earthy and toasty oaky notes. Layered structure, integrated, smooth tannins, perfect balance. A concentrated, great wine. Ideal with lightly spiced hearty meat dishes.”
