Grapes for this wine came from Síkhegy vineyard. After fermentation in tank and circular maceration the wine aged in large wooden barrels for 2 years. “A deep-coloured wine with intense aromas. Its aromas are still slow to open, but they are varied. The aromas of blue fruit, cherries and cocoa powder unfold, the slight chocolate finish associated with vibrant acids also shows that there is still plenty of potential in it. “ – description by Adél Bernáth-Ulcz from CsokiLaBor.
The label was inspired by a photo of the towers of Eger rising above the city. The design is made by Bence Fajcsák (Color and Code design), and he recommends to see the label in different light, because it shows different colours for example outside in the sun or inside a room.
