Story: From the Middle Ages onwards, the name Fränkisch was given to several high-quality varieties, indicating their superiority over the inferior Heunisch varieties. One of these high-quality varieties might have been Blaufränkisch, whose name did not appear until 1862 at a grape-variety exhibition in Wien. In Hungary, the variety was first mentioned in 1890 under the name Kékfrankos, the literal translation of Blaufränkisch.
Dark-skinned, dark-fruited Austro-Hungarian variety. Vigorous, early budding and late ripening, thus needing a relatively warm climate. It is susceptible to downy and powdery mildews. Its wine is ritch in fruits and acidity. Kékfrankos can give elegant wines with long ageing potential.


On the nose this light pink-coloured wine shows notes of cherry, strawberry and rosehip, together with some spiciness. The same cheerful and fruity aromas emerge in the sip as well, indeed, a special structure improves the notes more intensive in the wine. Light body, low alcohol content and crispy acids create the fresh base of this wine.
