Story: We planted Syrah in 2010 for the first time – at that time it was considered strange and rare, since the variety had not been widespread. The variety seems to enjoy Mátra, it has good characteristics both in the vineyard and the cellar. This medium bodied, intensely fruity wine with spicy-peppery notes makes everyone fall in love with red wines easily.
After opening the bottle, mild black fruit aromas meet our senses, gradually revealing the taste of pepper, and a very delicate leathery and smoky aftertaste. As time passes after opening the bottle, so does the wine open up as well, the fruit-driven nature of the wine intensifies, followed by the spiciness inherited from the oak cask. A well-balanced wine with a very enjoyable finish.
